By Sebastián Schjaer



In a snowy, industrial city in the south of Argentina, Paula, a 23- year-old girl from Buenos Aires, starts an intense job hunt with the sole purpose of saving money. The lack of a job, a home and a stable emotional environment will end up turning that search into a personal and introspective journey. She will have to deal with the hard living conditions in the south as well as with the unsolved aspects of her life, which will gradually be revealed. She knows she is shouting, but she can’t hear herself.

Berlinale – Panorama 2018 (GWFF Best First Feauture Award nominee)

“a claustrophobic character-study of a cash-strapped, resourceful young woman which works best as a showcase for lead Sofia Brito’s offbeat charisma. Premiering in Berlinale’s Panorama section, this co-production with the Netherlands and Switzerland is sufficiently distinctive to grace further festivals over the coming months.” – THR
