Parabellum Parabellum

Lukas Valenta Rinner / Argentina / 2015 / 75 min

Hernán, a middle-aged geologist is renouncing the comfort of his home in suburban Buenos Aires. He puts his cat up for adoption, cancels his phone subscription and seems to be leaving forever. He arrives with a group of strangers to an isolated house on the Delta area of Tigre. Together, they train, following strict guidelines for what seems to be the preparation for the end of the world.

Fear of apocalypse prompts a group of Buenos Aires citizens to attend bizarre survival training. A black comedy and an insightful character study of Argentine bourgeoisie seeking to escape the monotony of daily routine.

"We were already working on Parabellum when in 2012, following the end of the Mayan calendar, many people started to participate in survival courses to physically prepare themselves for the ‘end of the world’. I thought this panic and hysteria were intriguing and worth looking at. With time, it occurred to me that these preparatory trainings were a way of escaping reality and routine. I got the impression that, for some, the experience was an almost touristic one." (Lukas Valenta Rinner)
