Born And Bred tells the story of Santiago (Guillermo Pfening), a successful interior designer, husband to Milli (Martina Gusman) and loving father to daughter, Josefina (Victoria Vescio). His translucent veneer of urban contentment in Buenos Aires is torn away when tragedy strikes unexpectedly. Re-appearing in the frozen landscapes of Patagonia, and changed beyond recognition, Santiago begins a self-imposed penance in a wilderness of outsiders. Yet a warm camaraderie and humour characterise the friendships formed, offering hope to a soul tormented by the ghosts of an unalterable past. Santiago must re-engage with the present to remain one step ahead of insanity.
Widely applauded by international critics, and Official Selection at both Toronto and Rome Film Festivals, Born And Bred is the latest film from Argentine director Pablo Trapero. The follow up to the highly acclaimed Familia Rodante, Born & Bred charts the emotional journey of a father trying to rebuild his life after a terrible family accident. With excellent performances from Guillermo Pfening and Federico Esquerro, it is Pablo Trapero's most personal film to date.
