Rojo (2019) - Trailer (English Subs)


Set against the tense months leading up to Argentina’s 1976 coup d’état, successful lawyer Claudio is waiting to meet his wife at dinner when a confrontation with a stranger escalates into violence. His attempts to cope with the consequences slowly spin out of control. 109 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.

“… adopting a cool, oblique yet accessible approach that complements the washed-out, nicotine-stained palette, Naishtat builds a modular narrative that increasingly bristles.” — Manohia Dargis, The New York Times
