Synopsis

Made from the remains of never-completed Argentine features, La Película Infinita is, as it were, a parallel film history: an essay like a cinematographic Frankenstein, that blows new life into images that once seemed unsuccessful and pointless.

Our take

We close our Rotterdam series with a sublime experiment: a film resurrecting cinematic ghosts, injecting life into projects that never saw the light. Made out of unfinished Argentinian movies, this entrancing patchwork of fragmented narratives is an ode to the infinite possibilities of storytelling.
