Jazmín López

Argentina/France/Holland, 2012, 82 min., Spanish


Five friends wander around a forest playing language games that only seem to know. They are young, get bored, have fun, seduce each other without interruption. Having been suspended their temporal orientation, this gang lives a strange interval between youth and maturity, between humanity and animality. The young Jazmín López describes Leones as an “essay on death seen as a beautiful landscape”, a physical, experimental film debut where recent echoes can be heard–Gus Van Sant, Lisandro Alonso or Mikhaël Hers– and also more distant rumours –the footprints of The Territory (1981) by Raúl Ruiz or the influential An occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge (1962) by Robert Enrico–.


Jazmín López

Jazmín López was born in Buenos Aires, in 1984, where she graduated in direction at the Film University (FUC). Occasional actress for her friends’ films, Jazmín López started her career as director in 2007 with the short film Parece la pierna de una muñeca; then followed by Juego vivo (2008) and Te amo y morite (2009). In 2012 she presented in Venice her first full-length film, Leones, where the filmmaker has aligned her film passion and interest with her complementary vocation of audiovisual artist, an activity that led her to study along with Guillermo Kuitca and Jorge Macchi, to participate at the Istanbul Biennial of 2011 and also to exhibit in Argentina, Mexico and the USA.
