The Traps


Sofia arrives to pick up her boyfriend (Julian). He’s not at home, Romina (his sister) repeats exactly his instructions: “He left to fix his guitar”. The sister-in-laws are getting to know each other for the first time while they wait for Julian. At the end, we might discover the traps.

Information for the Audience: 

I was living in Los Angeles for year and made a trip back to Buenos Aires with my -at that time - boyfriend, now husband. While visiting family, catching up with friends and exploring great places with my husband. I had a lingering feeling of making a short film. Jazmin and I finally got together at a cafe in Palermo, 7 blocks south of Santa Fe Avenue, right after I was doing my Tourist Visa papers, had lost my passport in Brazil - don't mix plane pills with wine. Anyways, we've been wanting to do a movie together and both always fascinated by traveling, poetry and acting, we came up with an idea to develop a scene together. What about being sister in law but kinda like “the cool kind”,…
We wrote the script, I got together my best friends from Buenos Aires and we shot “The Traps” in only one day in Tron’s paradise.
They are not perfect sister, but definitely the cool kind.
