LONDON PREMIERE La vida en común + Q&A
Institute of Contemporary Arts

La vida en común, dir. Ezequiel Yanco, Argentina / France 2019, 70 min., Spanish with English subtitles

Absences, rather than presences, haunt La vida en común, an evocative film from Argentinian director Ezequiel Yanco. Set in Pueblo Nación Ranquel, an indigenous settlement from the Rankülche tribe located in the vast province of San Luis, this coming-of-age story follows a group of young teenage boys on the hunt for a puma that has been stalking their village, becoming their rite of passage into adulthood. Missing links propel the film forward: the puma is nowhere to be found, adult figures exist only on the periphery, a beloved dog goes missing. Exposing these voids, Yanco and his young protagonist Uriel traverse parallel realities constantly shifting between survival, dreams and adulthood.
This screening is followed by a Q&A with director Ezequiel Yanco.
