Ballarat Film Society – Heroic Losers
February 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
We begin with a comedy to start the year on a happy note. Set in 2001, when Argentina was at a low point economically, retired soccer star Fermin joins with other locals to finance a grain co-operative that falls prey to a deceptive banker.
Consequently, they band together to steal back the money. Revenge has never felt so satisfying – or sweetly ironic. With a cast of characters that are likable and convincing, the film was a hit with Argentinian and worldwide audiences alike.
Winner of the 2020 Spanish Academy Awards for Best Ibero-American Film.
Argentina, 2019, 116 min.
Director: Sebastian Borensztein.
