A woman sits by the window, looking out to the street. Behind her are photographs. She has a notebook and a photograph on her lap.
Hermia & Helena, dir. Matías Piñeiro, Argentina / USA  2016, 87 min., Spanish and English with English subtitles


A young theatre director from Buenos Aires travels to New York to work on a new translation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, but soon finds herself longing for her life back home.

For his first film shot outside of Argentina and in the English language, Piñeiro crafts an intriguingly fragmented tale filled with reunions and separations. Featuring a cast comprised of both Piñeiro regulars and stalwarts of New York’s independent film scene, Hermia & Helena is a complex collage of amorous detours that crosses hemispheres and languages.
