Is Remoro Barroso a lunatic imagining a past life as a successful director or a long-vanished filmmaker pretending to be insane? “Vanishing Landscapes” follows three film students as they make a documentary about Barroso, a mysterious character living in a Buenos Aires mental hospital who they suspect might actually be a famous 1960s-era director who disappeared after the still-unsolved murder of a young actress. 75 minutes.
