M-Appeal has released the trailer for the coming-of-age film “Vera and the Pleasure of Others,” which will have its world premiere at the Black Nights Film Festival in Tallinn, Estonia, in the First Feature Competition.
According to Variety, the film follows 17-year-old Vera, played by Luciana Grasso, who rents out an empty apartment to teenagers looking for a place to have sex. She steals the keys from her mother, who manages different properties, and organises everything. Vera stays behind the closed door, playing invisible, while her own sexual desires unfold as she listens to other people’s pleasure. The film was written and directed by the Argentinian duo Romina Tamburello and Federico Actis and produced by Santiago King of Argentina’s Pez Cine, with support from INCAA.
The cinematographer was Lucas Pérez, the editor was Danalí Riquelme, and the composer was Pablo Crespo. The film is the debut feature from Tamburello and Actis. Tamburello is the author of the plays Black Eyed Women and Jet Lag, while Actis directed the fiction short film The Cable Cars and the documentary feature The Architecture of Crime.
