La mirada invisible
The Invisible Eye

Diego Lerman

Argentina, Drama, 2010
95 min, 35mm, Color
Spanish with English subtitles


María Teresa is a lonely and deeply repressed assistant teacher at an elite Buenos Aires private school. Obedient and willing, she accepts unquestioningly the school's rigid code of conduct and proud identification with the nation state. But her head professor's words about the "cancer of subversion" and need for total surveillance soon feed an unhealthy obsession with one of her students, and lead to an ensuing spiral of degradation and breakdown in discipline that parallels a popular rebellion beyond the school's ivy-covered walls.
