Directed by Joel Novoa
90 mins. / Venezuela, Argentina, Uruguay, USA / Spanish, Arabic, Hebrew and French with English subtitles / 2013
Taut and mesmerising, fast action drama-thriller, based on the true story of the 1994 bombing of the Jewish community centre in Buenos Aires.
Award-winning young Venezuelan director Joel Novoa Schneider draws compelling performances from his two troubled protagonists: one a 'sleeper' terrorist, activated to carry out a deadly mission and the other, a Mossad agent, desperate to avoid past mistakes and prevent tragedy.
Fresh and unpredictable from start to finish this is an outstanding debut from one of the rising stars of Latin American cinema.
