The Roars That Keep The Storm Away. A young man alone
This short film destroys the myth that youth is that time of our life where socialization and community life is inevitable circumstance.
Escaping from domestic problems, Michel, a young Argentinean from the provinces, runs away from home and finds refuge in the middle of a forest by a lake.
Shot in color and 16mm, this short film premiered at the Berlinale explores the life of this kind of precocious outcast, a peaceful and free young man who thinks only of the present.
