Viola by Matías Piñeiro (Argentina, 2012, 65 min.). Piñeiro continues his fascination with Shakespeare in this dazzling riff on Twelfth Night, a mystery of romantic entanglements and intrigues among a troupe of young actors performing Shakespeare’s comedy. Like his previous feature, Rosalinda, the film Viola is not an adaptation, but rather uses Shakespeare as a way to explore the intersection of life, theater, and cinema. “Wonderfully inventive … a triumph of narrative imagination and bottom-line ingenuity” (The New York Times). In Spanish with English subtitles. Discussion with director follows the September 13 screening.
