Synopsis: A beautiful actress from cinema’s golden age, an actor in the twilight of his life, a frustrated scriptwriter, and an elderly director will do the impossible to try and preserve the world they have created in an old mansion, faced with the threat of a young couple who could jeopardize everything.

Internationally-acclaimed Argentinian director and writer for cinema and television, Campanella usually produces and edits his own works. Most of his cinema career has taken place in the U.S., with series like Law and Order: Special Victim Unit, House, and 30 Rock. He directed the first season of Colony and was executive producer for the second season. In Argentina, he produced several feature films that won multiple awards, including El mismo amor, la misma lluvia (1999), El hijo de la novia (2001), Luna de Avellaneda (2004), El secreto de sus ojos (2009)—winner of an Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 2010, and Metegol (2013). Among other works for TV, he directed, produced and wrote the miniseries Vientos de Agua (2006), which won five Martín Fierro awards. In 2012, he returned to the small screen with the series El Hombre de tu Vida. He was also showrunner for Entre Caníbales (2015). In 2013, he presented Parque Lezama, fulfilling a lifelong ambition of directing a stage production. This year he has returned to theatre with ¿Qué hacemos con Walter?, which is currently running in Multitheatre.

Sinopsis en español: Una bella estrella de la época dorada del cine, un actor en el ocaso de su vida, un escritor cinematográfico frustrado y un viejo director hacen lo imposible por conservar el mundo que han creado en una vieja mansión ante la llegada de dos jóvenes aventureros que representan una inminente amenaza.

Director de cine y televisión y guionista argentino, Juan José Campanella nació el 19 de junio de 1959. Ha recibido numerosos premios internacionales, entre ellos, varios Emmys y fue nominado 2 veces al Premio Oscar, ganándolo en 2010 a la Mejor película extranjera por El secreto de sus ojos.
