FILM INFORMATION

Synopsis After her husband mysteriously disappears during a business trip to Patagonia, Clara embarks on a desperate mission to find him. During her search, she makes a startling discovery: a man with an uncanny resemblance to her spouse, but with another name and a wife. Convinced the stranger may be her husband, she ignores entreaties to quit her search just as police discover a body that may be the real man she seeks. Shot amid majestic vistas and suffused with vibrant color and sexuality, director Sandra Gugliotta's feature is a haunting and suspenseful study of grief and letting go.

About the Director Sandra Gugliotta was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1969. She studied at the Escuela Nacional de Experimentación y Realización Cinematográfica in Madrid. Her filmmaking career began as a producer of independent films and documentaries for television. Her short film, Noches Áticas, was included in the feature Historias Breves I, and her first feature film, A Lucky Day, won the Caligari Film Award at the Berlin International Film Festival. Possible Lives is her second feature film.

REVIEWS

“Beautifully shot in the far southern reaches of Argentina, Gugliotta's romantic mystery should attract audiences with its 'what if?' take on the vagaries of love.” –The Hollywood Reporter

“In keeping with a number of recent Argentine films shot in Patagonia, there's an unsettling sense that the sparsely populated region is a cross between the Bermuda Triangle and a stint in the Foreign Legion -- contributing to madness with its promise of complete escape from the civilized capital and its hustle and bustle.” –Variety

"Las Vidas Possibles centers on the experience of loss, the silences and heart aches of disconnected intimacy, and those who wander through their own lives, quietly dreaming of other possibilities." –The Brooklyn Socialite
