The Distinguished Citizen
El ciudadano ilustre
2016 Spain, Argentina 117 min N-13

Argentina as seen by a cultured intellectual expat. A winner of the Nobel prize for literature, who has lived in Europe for decades, accepts an invitation from his native city in Argentina to receive an award. In a journey into the heart of literature itself, the man will rediscover the affection and affinities that continue to make him one with his people, as well as the irreconcilable differences that will lead to a crescendo of violence, with an unexpected outcome. The characters in his books come from that land, and it is there that they come back to life and rise up against their own author. Salas is the city that the writer carries in his heart, the city he has described with perhaps excessive sincerity, and which is now turning against him.
