BAFICI 2010, the 12th Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Films will show "Second Moon" Chicago filmmaker's Masahiro Sugano's feature film.  

 Second Moon


============ Second Moon =============
Art of Love is an organization that promotes free love and even helps –in exchange for money, because one has to make a living, and also buy those black suits– erasing the evidence of love betrayals. Q, one of the agents in the organization, is about to make a mistake: he starts a monogamous relationship with a Korean girl who, to make matters worse, is a good cook. Monogamous relationships are forbidden by Art of Love’s chief, Don Jim (masterfully played by Jim Finn). Second Moon has the aspect and tone of a Japanese lysergic crime film with lots of deadpan and jokes of all calibers, but it takes place in Chicago and is spoken in English. Amongst elegant, cold framings, as well as some brilliant reflections on revolutions by Finn, Second Moon is an insane film that has no fear of grotesque, and is presented as a farce that is able to combine whatever it wants, even some playful erotic shots of body parts that usually aren’t included in top five of the most obviously sexual areas of the body.
