2018 TRUE LIFE FUND FILM: PRIMAS (dir. Laura Bari)

Teaser: PRIMAS - a film by Laura Bari from GreenGround Productions on Vimeo.

Primas is an evocative portrait of two Argentinian cousins who free themselves from the shadows of violent pasts. The teenagers travel to Montreal where they are transformed by creative arts therapy. With dance, mime, theatre, circus and visual arts, they reveal their imagination and unshakable resilience.

Primas is Laura Bari’s second film to screen at True/False. Bari attended True/False 2010 with the playful “Antoine” about a five-year-old blind boy who dabbles in detective work. Bari’s warm, collaborative approach to filmmaking shines in Primas. At its core, the film is a tender confessional expressed with soulful authenticity.


The 2018 True Life Fund Film will benefit the two cousins, Rocío Álvarez and Aldana Bari Gonzalez.
