Country/Language: USA / English
Jim Carrey stars as Truman Burbank, an insurance adjuster who is the most famous face on television, only he doesn’t know it. He is the unwitting star of a nonstop, 24-hour-a-day documentary soap opera. Every moment of his life has been filmed by hidden cameras and broadcast to worldwide audiences. His friends, his family, everyone around him is an actor. He is a prisoner in a made-for-TV paradise, and this is the story of his escape.
Release Year: 2014
Directed by: Mariano Cohn, Gaston Duprat
A documentary feature envisioned to be watched on your feet, even dancing. The film recycles and redefines the aesthetic concept of the TV program Televisión Abierta in order to create a social picture from an almost anthropological outlook. It is about more than 50 people dancing in their own homes, one right after the other, in some sort of human endless loop that depicts a social universe with mordant complexity and tenderness.
