The Dread (6+)

Argentina, 2017, colour, 67 min.
Director: Martin Benchimol, Pablo Aparo
In a remote village in Argentina, home cures replace western medicine. Every disease is treated by neighbors except a rare disease that attacks women and is only cured by an old man, whom no one is encouraged to visit. Cunning comedy of deception acquaints us with a world where religious beliefs, esotericism and strict family commandments coexist.
