About this Event

The 21st Havana Film Festival New York (www.HFFNY.com) rolls out the red carpet with the NY Premiere of Argentina’s biggest box-office hit this year, El cuento de las comadrejas (The Weasels’ Tale), winner of the Audience Award at the 41st Habana Film Festival. The newest crowd-pleaser by Oscar-award-winning director Juan José Campanella (El secreto de sus ojos, 2009) tells the story of an eccentric group of elderly friends from Argentina’s Golden Age of cinema— a beautiful starlet, an actor in the twilight of his life, a witty screenwriter, and a cunning director— who live together in a mansion. Their unusual life is turned upside down at the arrival of a young couple seeking to persuade the actress to sell the house, forcing the other inhabitants to come together and conspire to drive the couple away and keep their home.

Director Juan José Campanella present for Q&A following the screening.
