The Distinguished Citizen [El Ciudadano ilustre] (Duprat, Cohn)

The Distinguished Citizen

El Ciudadano Ilustre | Gaston Duprat, Mariano Cohn

A Nobel prize-winning writer returns to his hometown for the first time in decades to receive a “distinguished citizen” award. A sharp satirical comedy, shot through with black humour, that illustrates the irreducible gap between the average citizen and the arrogant elites that feed on him. It aims some relevant and slyly cynical barbs at the sources of literary creation, the social foundations of culture and the comical vagaries of public opinion.

Flagey, Cinematek
