Santa Lives In My Town

  • Argentina
Audio Tracks 

There are lots of movies about Christmas. Many, too many, perhaps. But this is not a movie about Christmas. This is one about the construction of fiction, about the protagonists of the farce: those angelic beings who, dressed in red and white, greet us with a “ho, ho, ho”. Néstor Frenkel is usually recognized for his ability to see the world with curious eyes, to discover characters as extravagant as they are charming and to transform their stories, for them simple and daily, in extraordinary events.

Premiered at BAFICI, Santa Lives In My Town is no exception. It is an endearing film about bearded men who, dressed as Santa Claus, cheer all of our December, despite the overwhelming heat of the city and the poor ventilation of their suits. It is for them, in addition to being a job, being Santa Claus is a life mission, and Christmas is something that is lived all year round.
