EXCLUSIVE: Trailer for Artemio Benki's Solo
- The directorial debut by the French-Czech producer is set to world-premiere as part of the ACID selection during the Cannes Film Festival
Martín P is a young Argentinian piano virtuoso and composer, who has, since his breakdown four years ago, been a patient of El Borda, the largest and most notable but also most controversial psychiatric hospital in Latin America. The child prodigy and the most promising talent of his generation is now trying to find a way to overcome his mental illness and come back to life outside the walls of the asylum and on the concert stages, while working on his new composition, Enfermaria. Solo tells a unique yet universal story about the obsession with perfection and creation, narrating the evolution of a human being who draws his strength from his own fragility.
This is the synopsis for Solo [+see also:
