WHAT I LOVE THE MOST - From Argentina - 76 Minutes @ 9:00

What I Most Want, Delfina Castagnino’s stunning feature film debut, is a heartfelt and sincere portrayal of two young women experiencing profound bereavement. Shot in Bariloche, in the Argentine Patagonia, the film is embedded in the natural world, providing the necessary physical space for the characters to contemplate their present and future. Maria (Maria Villar) visits her friend Pilar (Pilar Gamboa) who has recently lost her father and lives alone in Bariloche. While Pilar is coming to terms with her loss, Maria too is mourning the loss of love she once had with her boyfriend. Escaping the trap of Buenos Aires, she finds the trip south providing the necessary change to realize that her relationship is coming to an end. And there’s a local boy, Diego (Esteban Lamothe), who offers Maria a wonderful distraction from her problems.
