London is proud to announce that the festival will open its fifth edition this August with Pablo Trapero’s THE CLAN (El Clan).

 

The Argentine Film Festival in London celebrates 5 years showcasing the best contemporary films from and about Argentina alongside special events, music and Malbec. The Argentine Film Festival will receive its London premiere on Thursday 18th August at Curzon Soho and will be attended by director Pablo Trapero.

THE CLAN written and directed by Pablo Trapero (White Elephant, Carancho, Lion’s Den), tells the true-crime story of the seemingly respectable Puccio family in Argentina who in the early 1980s ran a lucrative family business kidnapping their wealthy neighbours for ransom. Guillermo Francella (The Secret in Their Eyes) stars in the film.
