In this hip urban drama, nurse Cristina and architect Tristan are strangers in search of love. Play, whose title is taken from its pinball style of bouncing from one story to the next, places these lonely hearts in Santiago de Chile one hot and polluted summer. Writer/ director Alicia Scherson’s offbeat first feature won Best New Narrative Filmmaker Award at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival and is representing Chile for Oscar consideration. 2005, Chile/Argentina, color, 35mm, in Spanish with English subtitles, 100 minutes.
Born in Santiago, Chile, Alicia Scherson received a Fulbright scholarship to study fine arts at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1999. In 2002, she returned to Chile to work as a film teacher. Her short works have received numerous awards at international film festivals.
