Description:
A spellbinding, slow-burn suspense drama, Rojo draws us into a scenario where nothing is as it seems - exploring a country that has lost its moral compass.

In the mid-70s, a stranger arrives in a quiet provincial town in Argentina. In a restaurant, for no apparent reason, he sets about attacking Claudio, a well-known lawyer. The community supports the lawyer, humiliates the stranger and throws him out. Later, on the way home, Claudio and his wife Susana are once again intercepted by the stranger, who is determined to wreak his terrible revenge on Claudio. The lawyer embarks on a road of no-return, of death, secrets and silences.

"I was very interested in and appealed by this whole 1970s decade, I mean, it has marked the country and still resonates a lot in the current big social and political tensions we are facing today. I am also a big fan of the films from the 1970s, and I tried to create one that employs the grammar of the time." (Benjamín Naishtat)
