cordially invite you to ARGENTINA NIGHT!
A Screening of Oscar-nominated Argentine film WILD TALES and exhibition of the work of Argentine artist HERNAN GIGENA


FRIDAY 21 AUGUST

THE ARTS CLUB
2017 Eye Street NW, WDC 20006 MAP / DIRECTIONS / PARKING 
 

WILD TALES
122 minutes, Spanish with English subtitles

Director: Damián Szifrón
Producer: Pedro Almodóvar
Writer: Damián Szifrón
Stars: Darío Grandinetti, María Marull, Mónica Villa


Inequality, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people. Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters of Wild Tales cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover’s betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control.

REVIEWS

Argentina’s nominee for the foreign-film Oscar is a farce about revenge that is feral, ferocious and gut-bustingly funny. You’ll laugh till it hurts.
—Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

In between its shocker start and equally startling windup, this Argentine anthology offers up a scabrous, often unsettlingly funny look at human behavior in extremis.
—Manohla Dargis, New York Times

You never lose interest for a moment, and the images are often striking: Javier Julia did the stylish cinematography. Yet there’s little lift from the carryings-on, not much buoyancy in the misanthropy.
—Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

HERMAN GIGENA

HERNAN GIGENA

Hernan Gigena was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After graduating as a graphic designer, he moved to Europe to continue his studies in 3D design, animation and multimedia. Hernan’s passion for art, design and visual communication brought him to the United States where he earned a Master degree in Art and Education from the Corcoran College of Art and Design. Soon after moving to Washington, DC, Hernan’s innovative design approach found it’s voice within the international community including the Word Bank Group, the International Monetary Fund and the Inter-American Development Bank. While his contribution as a designer (multimedia/graphic) won him international recognition, it is his masking tape drawings and jewelry pieces that caught the attention of local art lovers and collectors.

During the past six years, Hernan’s energetic, colorful and whimsical work was displayed and celebrated in public and private collections such as at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Phillips Collection, the National Portrait Gallery, the World Bank Headquarters, the Renaissance Hotel, Fox NEWS, and the Washington Post. Also, his original pieces (drawings and Jewelry) can be found in private collectors’ collections from coast to coast in the US.
