31-year-old director Pablo Trapero’s work draws comparisons to Roberto Rossellini for his naturalistic but poetic style. Trapero’s own grandmother plays the lead role of an 85-year-old who sets off in a camper, accompanied by her extended family, to travel to a wedding in her home village. The trip serves Trapero as a background for a critical and amusing journey through a torn and politically troubled Argentina full of contradictions.
PABLO TRAPERO (*1971) is seen as one of Argentinian cinema's best story-tellers. In 2012, FILMFEST HAMBURG howed his film White Elephant. The Clan ran in competition in Venice and in Argentina attracted audiences of more than 500,000 in its first four days - a record for Argentinian cinema.
