Figuras (Eugenio Canevari)


Stella is an Argentinian with no ID papers. Since she fell ill with motor neuron disease, her partner, Paco, has been helping her move, eat and communicate. Her daughter, Valeria, keeps her company when she’s free but struggles to see her mother going downhill and hits the town at night. While they wait for a council house, they try to get by a day at a time on the little they have. A striking portrait of illness, ageing and family ties.


Eugenio Canevari studied film in Buenos Aires and, after working on several film shoots in Argentina, travelled to Brussels and Barcelona to continue studying photography and film. His short film Gorila baila (2013) has won a clutch of awards at festivals; his first feature, Paula (2015), premiered at the San Sebastián Festival and competed in the Official Section at the 23rd edition of l’Alternativa. Figuras is his second feature film.
