Festival starts in


Buildings are not supposed to move. But on Avenida Libertador 2050, a building moves and the ceiling shivers, causing a strange nausea that devours its residents. Those who live on the top are afraid they’ll fall, the ones who live beneath are afraid they’ll drown.

Director's Statement

Electric Swan: a surreal micro-portrait of Buenos Aires. The architecture resonates with the emotional map of the residents. The different social classes rule the geometry of the city. Magic realism finds cracks on the walls and intrudes in everyday life, connecting different floors, different people. In a building full of dogs, you don’t listen to the barks, only to the big chandelier shivering. The building shakes because its residents also shake... dream, hate, love, cry, open holes on the walls, dance and faint under the spell of Swan Lake.
