A woman stands in a dark, grassy field with a map
Trenque Lauquen, dir. Laura Citarella, Argentina / Germany 2022, Spanish with English subtitles, 266 min.

A woman vanishes. Two men take to the road in search of her: they both love her. Why did she leave? Each one of them has his own suspicions, and hides them from the other one who, mysteriously, never truly becomes his rival. Neither is right – but is anyone? This sudden run away becomes the hidden core of a number of fictions that the film weaves: the secret of the heart of another woman, lost as well, many years ago; the secret of the life of a village in the countryside, governed by a supernatural incident that nobody seems to perceive; the secret of the plains, which never ceases to spread and devour everything, like the shadows that invade the world after the twilight hour. 

Laura Citarella’s labryinth of fictions is an enigmatic and liberating mystery that embodies Argentine collective El Pampero Cine’s inventive spirit whilst also forging new and intriguing directions.
