Synopsis

In the peripheries of New York City, Gladys lives with her daughter. They do not know anything else but how to live in the same space, in the same house, a place that has become the everything of their lives. Hidden from a city that also hides from them, it only manifests itself in its appearance. It is a New York that shrinks to four walls, where Caribbean Spanish is spoken and that briefly refers to itself in two or three badly pronounced words of English.

About Nabis

Nabis was created in March of 2010; an idea stemmed from a group of film direction and photography students living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is a film collective focused mainly on production of auteur films in South America in order to also establish a connection with European production.

Although based in Buenos Aires, Nabis is linked to Salzburg, Austria, which serves as a bridge to showcase the broad and independent production opportunities in Argentina. Our main aim is to produce and incorporate all fields of film production and proposals from young talents to create short-films, features and documentaries that maintain a specific creativity and style that we can call our own.
