LA VIDA ÚTIL – A USEFUL LIFE

The Cinemateca Uruguaya has existed for over 50 years. Now its time has come as nobody comes up for the rent and maintainence anymore. In this fictional tale which’s black and white picture appears as dusty as the old cinema itself we accompany Jorge, one of the cranky people running the house during his last days of duty and see him as a bent man. No wonder, without the cinematheque he is nothing but a filmical quote. Fortunately life goes on – with a little drama added through the use of the film score.
