EL PATRÓN

(In Spanish with English subtitles)

Tuesday, 20 June 2017 at 6:30 p.m.
Cinérama Empire, rue de Carouge 72-74

How much exploitation can a man take ? El Patrón (The Boss, Anatomy of a Crime) is a solid social thriller based on a true story. A humble peon finds a job in a Bueno Aires’ butcher shop. His boss, a sinister character, introduces him to the meat business while subjecting him, by means of pressure and extortion, to slavery. The boss overwhelming cruelty inevitably leads to tragedy. This film delicately tackles some of the thorniest issues facing Argentina, among them regionalism, class discrepancies, corruption and judicial rigidity. Its universal subject matter of worker exploitation garnered El Patrón several prizes in festivals all over the world.
