Lock Charmer (El cerrajero)
Directed and written by Natalia Smirnoff Cast: Esteban Lamothe, Erica Rivas, Yosiria Huaripata
Sebastián is a 33-year-old locksmith who has never really believed in long-term commitments. Not even with Mónica, his most steady relationship which has only lasted five months. When she reveals she is pregnant and that he is the likely father, Sebastián’s world takes a strange turn : he begins to have strange visions about his clients whenever he’s working on their doors.
Some would call it a gift, but, for Sebastián, it feels more like a curse. Together with the help of Daisy, an unlikely assistant who very much wants to believe in his gift, he reluctantly sets out to use his talent for his own good.
Why we're excited: Argentinian Director and writer Natalia Smirnoff follows up her 2009 award-winning debut The Puzzle with a clever, unusual drama, steeped in supernatural elements.
