With an US film and an Argentine short, this Friday begins the 17th edition of the Festifreak

With the film “Friends and strangers” the debut of us director James Vaughan, this Friday will begin the 17th edition of the Halloween Kills Independent Film Festival of La Plata FestiFreak.

A unique comedy about disconnection and boredom in contemporary Australia through the eyes of two twentysomethings. Ray and Alice have almost everything and maybe that’s the problem. It seems that no aspect of your life has intensity.

Once they have buried all their ambitions, the only thing left is the indefinite remains of something. Amid blatant irony and emotional detachment, James Vaughan offers his insight into the emotional voids of the millennial generation.

The program will be completed with the Latin American premiere “Querida Chantal”, the new short film by Nicolás Pereda, which will be available until October 4 inclusive. Both films can be seen for free from 6 pm on www.festifreak.com.

On the other hand, this weekend the face-to-face activities will begin with the first two performances of El Incidente Max Headroom, a performance presented by Las Musicalizadas at the En Eso Somos cultural factory (Calle 62 Nº 274, La Plata).

In addition, the programs of the Freaks section will begin with the international premiere of Be careful out there, by Alberto García, and the short films The parent’s room, by Diego Marcon, and Explaining the Law to Kwame, by Roee Rosen.

Finally, the section The sound around will be inaugurated with the Latin American premiere of Renegade Breakdown, a laboratory experiment by Denis Côté that captures the singer Marie Davidson and her new band L’Œil Nu’s, and the Argentine premiere of the short In the Air Tonight , by Andrew Norman Wilson, on the urban legend surrounding the Phil Collins song.
