La luz incidente (Incident Light)


Luisa (Érica Rivas) is trying to put her life back together after losing both her husband and brother in a terrible car accident. She is left with the responsibility of raising her twin daughters Maria and Ana all by herself, while her mother tries to help her during the difficult times. Then Luisa meets Ernesto (Marcelo Subiotto) and she is instantly attracted to him. Ernesto falls hard for Luisa and he asks her to marry him while vowing to take care of the family. All of this is rushing forward so unexpectedly that Luisa must force herself to slow down, to think about her past, to meditate on what her new life with Ernesto could be like, as she tentatively embarks on a new relationship that might give the family back some stability. Incident Light was shot in luminous black and white, paying close attention to how its characters interact with space, décor and clothing, and apprehending the special ambiance of 1960s Argentina.
