A new year for BAL (Buenos Aires Lab) in its search for what is coming, the task of detecting talent, shed light on it, and project it into the future. The renovation of this commitment and tireless endeavor is related to detecting film projects right when they need encouragement to go out to the world, but through the years BAL has also proved it has a radar in perfect condition for both carrying this scouting job and defining what this encouragement should be.
In a time when project labs multiply and explanations seem more important than images, BAL aims to distance itself from the inertia of what is evident in order to sort out what kind of help is the best one possible within a map of mutant needs. This year, Buenos Aires Lab again bets on the work in progress, but in a radical way: searching for the finest Latin American projects, presenting for the first time huge projects out of program, and finally presenting previews of the continent’s future cinema to critics, programmers, and industry professionals here in Bafici, in April, and in the Marché du Film in Cannes, in May.
Because what films need today is to be seen, to have a spotlight on them that would differentiate them from an ocean of projects with relative or null interest. And there is BAL, as always, with its radar, its will and its history.
