The Canadian filmmaker Gary Burns, featured in a retrospective “Focus” on his work at the Festival, will dialogue with film critic Javier Porta Fouz today, Thursday, at 4.30 pm at the auditorium of the Meeting Point, on the mezzanine level of the Abasto Shopping Mall. No tickets are required to attend the talk: all you have to do is show up (admission limited to room capacity). With an ironic style and subtle observation of everyday reality, Burns combines wry humor and existentialism in his films.

“It’s a real honor and I look forward to reaching a South American audience. It’s my first full retrospective at an international festival, so it’s a big event for me. My films are linked thematically as they all attempt to address the complexities of our urban/suburban condition. It will be interesting to see if the films resonate with audiences in Buenos Aires,” expressed the filmmaker before traveling to the city. Now it’s time to listen to him live.
