Dolores Fonzi (TRUMAN) and Oscar Martinez (WILD TALES) star in this unflinching drama that examines privilege, class, and the power of the judicial system when a young teacher and activist is sexually assaulted by a gang but refuses to give up her ideals in the aftermath.
Santiago Mitre’s PAULINA (an update of Daniel Tinayre’s La Patota) tells the story of a bright lawyer (Paulina, played by Dolores Fonzi) who leaves a promising career in the shadow of her politically-powerful father to work as a schoolteacher in a marginalized village in Argentina’s Northeast, on the border with Paraguay and Brazil. After leaving Buenos Aires behind and moving to a rural area, it becomes clear to Paulina that her work is going to be challenging; she speaks no Guaraní and her teenage students artfully parry her attempts to lift them into political consciousness. These uneasy encounters and subtly observed civics lessons echo disturbingly in the aftermath of a violent sexual assault by a group of young men. Paulina’s decisions in its wake, portrayed without judgment by Fonzi, mercilessly test her relationships and core beliefs.
