Water and Salt (Agua y sal)

Synopsis (momentan nur in Englisch verfügbar)
Water is represented by a married couple from Buenos Aires who walks down the beaches of Mar del Plata, visits the fishermen pear, takes pictures and goes on a boat tour that ends up with the man in the water almost drowned. Later we will find out they have been trying to get pregnant for a long time but she can’t conceive. The salt is represented by a couple from Mar del Plata, he’s a thirtysome fisherman and she’s a sixteen year old girl. She just told her family they’re going to get married but didn’t mention her pregnancy. Between the two stories, Agua y Sal draws a thin line to separate its two universes while also seems to blend them together one on top of the other, like a sort of holographic overprint in which Rafael Spregelbud plays both male roles. Through this “divided indivisibility” featured in his second feature, Alejo Taube’s wisely ambiguous storytelling addresses the abyss that hides behind crystal clear appearances.
