Marimbas Award

Think an ordinary existential midlife crisis is hard? Try having one as an aging philosophy professor! Such is the burden Marcelo (Marcelo Subiotto) must carry in Puan

when, after a lifetime of teaching philosophy at the Public University of Buenos Aires, his mentor dies unexpectedly. Though Marcelo believes his ascension to department chair is a formality, an unexpected rival in the form of the charismatic and seductive Rafael (Leonardo Sbaraglia) arrives from the European universities to challenge him. Suddenly Marcelo has more to worry about than his receding hairline and growing paunch—he’s at risk of losing his very identity. As Marcelo clumsily attempts to win the ensuing absurdist philosophical duel, his life—and country—spiral into chaos.


María Alché studied film direction in the ENERC (National Film School) from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and graduated in 2010. That internationally prestigious school admits only ten students per field each year.
