Thigh and Drumstick

On an astro pitch in Buenos Aires two teams embark on a surreal contest. A satirical reimagining of a football match, that turns into a dance, a seduction of the camera and finally, a Gatsby tea party, while the soundtrack explodes with free jazz.

Director Statement

I seek a cinema of poetic actions where the actors are guided by their costumes and the context, free movement, loud colours and strokes of surrealism. The narrative line is secondary to the image. I work with almost no scripted dialogue, the action and words spoken surface in the moment of filming. It is an improvised cinema. A happening.
