Event Originally produced by Kino Lorber in 2016.
Summary Camila, a young Argentine theater director, travels from Buenos Aires to New York for an artist residency to work on a new Spanish translation of *A Midsummer Night's Dream*. Upon her arrival, she quickly realizes that her work isn't compensating for the loss of her friends and the lover she left behind. When she begins to receive a series of mysterious postcards from Danièle, a former participant in the same residency, Camila second-guesses her artistic endeavors and begins to seek answers about her past.  HERMIA & HELENA is a film of dead ends and new beginnings, navigating amorous detours across hemispheres and languages, in which the words of Shakespeare clash with the entanglements of modern, digital life. Official Selection at the **New York Film Festival** and the **Toronto International Film Festival**. Nominated for Best Film at the **Locarno International Film Festival**. *"There are a few different potential films within Hermia & Helena - a Shakespeare adaptation, a tale of romantic relationships, a tale of family - but the totality proves a sunny and affable literary collage." - Abbey Bender, **Village Voice***
