Among the many promising pictures that will play in the Panorama section at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival, the world premiere of “El Rey Del Once” is certainly one to keep an eye on. The film takes place in Buenos Aires’ Jewish community and comes from Argentinian writer-director Daniel Burman (“Brother and Sister,” Lost Embrace”).
The official synopsis reads: “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.”
The film hit Berlinale 2016 on Friday, February 12. Watch the hilarious trailer above.
