FILM INFORMATION

Synopsis The seemingly unavoidable downward spiral of Argentina's middle class during the current economic and social crisis is vividly brought to life in the character of young, street-smart Paola. A talented, would-be actress with a paying job as a waitress, she is always on the run: from her landlord, from the gas bill, from being late for work, and from her father's demands. Her energy is matched in the nervous yet intimate camera work that follows her closely though the 24 hours she is given to raise the money required to avoid being evicted. Paola's disillusion and emotional turmoil become increasingly disturbing as her desperation leads her to darker corners of Buenos Aires' nightlife. Alejandro Chomski tracks actress Antonella Costa in every frame lending enormous credibility to the troubled Paolo with her appropriately wired performance.

About the Director Alejandro Chomski was born in Argentina in 1968. Much of his academic and professional training took place in the U.S., where he moved after studying sociology for three years in Buenos Aires. In Los Angeles, a Fulbright Scholarship allowed him to complete a Master's degree at the American Film Institute. He has produced, written, directed and shot numerous shorts, supported by actors and actresses like Charles Rocket and Julie Delpy. Chomski has worked as an assistant on videos, commercials and features for directors Spike Lee, Luis Puenzo, Emir Kusturica and Jim Jarmusch. He shot a documentary spoof titled, Who Is Alejandro Chomski?. In 2001, Chomski won the INCAA Competition for Young Directors. Today and Tomorrow is his first feature.
