mi querido diversión

Yes, the long weekend holiday is supposed to be about Argentina’s independence from Spain, but the best things to do this weekend are all from the U.S. Go figure.

Saturday, July 7

“El afinador de terremotos ,” the second feature film from the Brothers Quay, is as superbly made–albeit creepy–as ever. We could go over the details of the plot, but it’s really besides the point; all you need to know is that the film mixes their trademark animation with live action. See this poetic science fiction narrative in all its glory at its premier tonight.

Sunday, July 8:

On Wednesday, July 4th, Zizek celebrated independence U.S.-style. This Sunday, it does the same for Argentina. And like all things Argentine (streets, flags, steaks, etc.), it has to be bigger and better. Thus, Super Zizek. DJs King Coya & El Trip Selector, Oro11 (in what may be his last major show in Buenos Aires), Bomboclap Soundsystem, and Douster take over the main room at Niceto with the only thing they know– cumbia, dancehall, hip hop and reggaeton.

    Good Lord…another fan of the Quay Brothers? I didn’t think there were that many of us out there. Toss in Jan Svanmajer and you’ve got a double feature that will blow your synapses out like a flickering candle. Fellow surrealists unite!
