LINIERS, THE SIMPLE LINES OF THINGS
Directed by Franca González
Run time: 77 minutes
The film is a documentary about Liniers, one of the youngest and most talented cartoonists of Argentina. His drawings are published daily in the newspaper, in books and in magazines. In the privacy of a house in the cold winter of Montréal (the temperature moutside is below 30 degrees), he creates, dreams, innovates while he is permanently recorded by the film director’s camera. The film shows the story of that particular cohabitation which becomes possible through a scholarship for foreign artists that imposed such condition precisely. Neither of them had ever lived with a stranger for such a long time.
One year later, they meet again in a hot, stifling Buenos Aires. Liniers seems like a different person here. He has just become a father. He is an artist spoiled by critics. The Director proposes him to continue with the filming and show the other face of Montréal.
