Argentine director Daniel Burman will premiere his latest work “The Tenth Man” (El rey del Once) as part of the Berlinale’s Panorama section on February 12, 2016. Burman’s previous directorial effort “The Mystery of Happiness” became a local box-office success when it opened in Argentina back in 2014 and was distributed in the U.S. by Strand Releasing.
The official synopsis reads as follows:
Ari, who has built a successful career in New York, thinks he has left his past behind. But his distant father Usher who runs a Jewish aid foundation in El Once, the close-knit old Jewish neighborhood of Buenos Aires, summons him back to his native city. What ensues is a comedy of errors, of missed and found people and connections, and a rumination on the extent to which we can ever really leave our past behind.
