The Aura
Filmfest 2006

From the director of NINE QUEENS. Espinoza is an introverted taxidermist who secretly dreams of executing the perfect robbery. On his first ever hunting trip, in the calm of the Patagonian forest, his dreams are unexpectedly made reality with one squeeze of the trigger. Espinoza accidentally kills a man who turns out to be a real criminal and becomes heir to his scheme: the heist of an armored van carrying casino profits. Caught up in a world of complex new rules and frightening violence, Espinoza‘s inexperience puts him in real danger. However, he has another, more dangerous liability: he is an epileptic. Before each seizure he is visited by the ‘aura’: a paradoxical moment of confusion and enlightenment where the past and future seem to blend. These attacks appear without notice when he least expects them, just when he needs all his wits about. Celluloid Dreams
