FILM INFORMATION

ON DVD: Fall/Winter 2012


Synopsis Set against the backdrop of Argentina’s military regime of the 1980s, Diego Lerman’s engrossing and beautifully acted exploration of the totalitarian urge opens with a portrait of María Teresa, a lonely and deeply repressed assistant teacher at an elite Buenos Aires private school. Obedient and willing, she accepts unquestioningly the school’s rigid code of conduct and proud identification with the nation state. But her head professor’s words about the “cancer of subversion” and need for total surveillance soon feed an unhealthy obsession with one of her students, leading to an ensuing spiral of degradation and breakdown in discipline that parallels a popular rebellion beyond the school’s ivy-covered walls.


About the Director Diego Lerman was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1976. He graduated from the University of Buenos Aires, where he studied cinema and theater. In 2002, he directed his first feature film, Suddenly, which was awarded the Silver Leopard at the Locarno International Film Festival. In 2008, he co-founded the production company Campo Cine with Nicolas Avruj. The Invisible Eye is his third feature film.

REVIEWS

“Classy production values and a knockout lead.” –Variety

“Lerman grows as a director film by film, here showing he can handle a more classic narrative (adapted from the novel by Martin Kohan) and setting without abandoning quirky characters who have their own weird depth.” –Hollywood Reporter
