Rojo

Friday, October 11, 2019 at 7:00pm to 8:49pm

Willard Straight Theatre
Central Campus

In the mid-seventies, a strange man arrives in a quiet provincial city. In a restaurant, without any apparent reason, he starts insulting Claudio, a renowned lawyer. The community supports the lawyer and the stranger is humiliated and thrown out of the place. Later that night the stranger, who is determined to wreak a terrible vengeance, intercepts Claudio and his wife Susana. The lawyer then takes a path of no return involving death, secrets and silences. "Deceptive appearances and fatal disappearances convey the rotten heart of 1970s Argentina in Rojo. Writer/director Benjamin Naishtat's subtle, twisting, state-of-the-nation drama works effectively as a noir-like thriller, and as an exploration of a country that has lost its moral compass."
