El notificador | Blas Eloy Martinez, 2011
Argentina | Format: 35mm | 76 minutes

North American Premiere! Director Blas Eloy Martinez in person!

Eloy is a young civil servant whose job is to deliver documents notifying people on the state of their lawsuits. He is obsessive about every detail of his work, but seems oblivious of the absurd situations in which legal bureaucracy immerses him. His own story unravels with dry, Kafkaesque humor as each delivery opens into the outrageous worlds of the different urban dwellers he visits, offering a way out of his personal crisis.

Eloy es un joven empleado judicial encargado de entregar cédulas judiciales informando a la gente sobre sus juicios. Es obsesivo con cada detalle de su trabajo, pero parece no darse cuenta de las situaciones absurdas en que la burocracia judicial lo hace caer. Su propia historia se va desgranando con humor Kafkiano a medida que cada entrega lo expone al mundo estrafalario de un nuevo poblador urbano, ofreciendo una salida a su crisis personal. El director Blas Eloy Martinez estará presente para conversar con el público.
