Matias Pineiro, one of rising directors in Argentina, emerges as a gifted storyteller in our time with his works dealing with theater play and reality. His previous work, The Man Stolen won at International Competition of 2008 JIFF. Having been chosen for JIFF’s Work in Progress program last year, Viola is a story of the actors rehearsing for Twelfth Night by Shakespeare, dealing with both in their lives on the stage and the reality behind the scene. Viola, the heroine, lives with her boyfriend and sells illegal copies of DVDs. Her own life story greatly affects on her way of defining art. Like the director has been appropriately nicknamed as an Argentine Jacques Rivette, Viola reminds of the similarity of theater play and real life. Shakespeare’s lines become the poetic language that consoles our reality, and strikes the sensitive chords of our mind. Pineiro puts life into the classic lines of Shakespeare and make it relevant languages for modern life and contemporary art.
