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.
