    “He” seeks the elevation of his conscience through dreams and intuition. An enigmatic encounter with his soulmate, Ana, reveals symbols leading to a marked path.

  10. Topos

    Emiliano Romero / Un mundo extraño Showcase / Argentina / 2012 / Drama / 100 mins
    In a future Argentina, the class divide has become so great that most people live desperate lives in the tunnels beneath the city like moles; while the elite live in comfort on the surface. One human mole, however, deceivingly makes his way into a surface dance academy, attempting to break free of the confines of his class. Topos defies categorization, choosing to supplement the class conflict themes with extremely stylish cinematography and art design. Director Emiliano Romero takes full advantage of the visual language of film to present an exaggerated and hallucinatory world.
