    The search for a missing woman unspools in two unexpectedly interconnected parts in Laura Citarella's playful new feature. The missing woman is Laura (Laura Paredes), a biologist cataloging plant species in and around the Argentinean city of Trenque Lauquen. The men searching for her: Rafael, her boyfriend, and Ezequiel, a coworker who has come to mean more to her in recent days. But in order to uncover the truth of Laura's disappearance, a profusion of mysteries must be explored. There's the question of love letters hidden in books in the local library, the discovery of a new species of flower, and then there's the mysterious being, rumored to be haunting the lake at the center of town.

    From El Pampero Cine, the collective behind La Flor, comes a labyrinthine tale of obsessive pursuit and the quest for personal freedom.

    Film Reviews

    CRITIC'S PICK! "A wondrous multipart epic…Once you lose yourself in the thickets of Trenque Lauquen, you won’t want to be found."
    -Devika Girish, The New York Times

    "A transfixing puzzle of romance, mystery, and adventure."
     - Melissa Anderson, 4Columns

    "If the fickle and sprawling intrigues of Trenque Lauquen are about any one thing, it is love—love that casts a spell not unlike that of a painting or a novel, captivating you with a force and clarity that cannot be defined."
     - Beatrice Loayza, Film Comment

    "Thrilling and engrossing, like new love...An intimate, novelistic puzzle that charts a region, a number of interconnected lives, and a series of past and present events like a hand-drawn map."
     - Sarah Fensom, Reverse Shot
