Plot Synopsis:

Hermia & Helena is the latest beguiling work from Argentinian filmmaker Matías Piñeiro (The
Princess of France), brilliantly adapting Shakespeare to the modern age. Camila (Agustina
Muñoz), a young Argentine theater director, travels from Buenos Aires to New York for an
artist residency to work on a new Spanish translation of Shakespeare s A Midsummer Night s
Dream. Upon her arrival, she quickly realizes that her work isn t compensating for the loss of
her friends and the lover she left behind. When she begins to receive a series of mysterious
postcards from Danièle (Mati Diop, Claire Denis s 35 Shots of Rum), a former participant
in the same residency, Camila second-guesses her artistic endeavors and begins to seek
answers about her past. It is a film of dead ends and new beginnings, navigating amorous
detours across hemispheres and languages, in which the words of Shakespeare clash with
the entanglements of modern, digital life.
