"Pizza, Beer and Smokes"
Directed by Adrian Caetano/Bruno Stagnaro
An instant cult hit in its native Argentina, this
gritty drama captures the chaos of life on the streets of poverty-stricken
Buenos Aires. A gang of teenagers roam the slums until Sandra, the only
girl in the gang, decides that she's had enough. Pregnant with El Cordobes'
child, Sandra threatens to leave the hood if he doesn't straighten up. El
Cordobes decides to pull one more heist, but his plans go terribly wrong.
Directors Adrian Caetano (A Red Bear,
Bolivia) and Bruno Stagnaro offer a brutally
real film that's one of the highlights of the bold New Argentine Cinema.
