In the Clouds (En Las Nubes)

Directed by Marcelo Mitnik

Short Narrative
Argentina| 20 minutes | 2014

EN LAS NUBES (In the Clouds) explores the complicated -and often comedic- differences between how we think romance should work and how it actually does. Set around Buenos Aires during one momentous week in the lives of Mariela, an Argentinean illustrator, and Oliver, an American dog food executive working abroad, the film takes a look at cultural disagreements about intimacy and the way the once-simple idea of a marriage proposal has taken on an increasingly public, and sometimes ridiculous, weight in this golden age of YouTube.
