JANUARY / ANFANG JANUAR / PRIMERO ENERO

AR 2016, D: Darío Mascambroni, 63 Min.
Fiction, OV with Eng. ST, with German voice-over, released for 6+, recommended for 9+

In the Greek fables that Valentino’s dad tells him during the last holidays in the family’s soon to be sold country house, women appear as unpredictable and mythical creatures. But the camera tells a different story. Its poetic imagery captures what is missing in such an intense way that the absence of Valentino’s mother becomes almost tangible. She is present as the father initiates his son in the family’s traditions while fishing, hiking and playing. Filled with new impressions Valentino starts developing his own rituals. The farewell thus also marks a cautious new beginning.

Winner of the “Best Film Award” and the “FEISAL Award“ at BAFICI 2016 in Argentina and nominated for the Children’s Jury’s “Crystal Bear for the Best Film” at Berlin International Film Festival 2017
