Argentinian filmmakers Santiago Giralt, Camila Toker, Tamae Garateguy co-wrote, co-directed and star in this low-budget comedy about a filmshoot gone awry. Giralt and Garateguy play a pair of indie auteurs who win a chunk of cash to produce their masterpiece, a film starring an actress played by Toker. Unfortunately, problems arise almost from the first minute, when a potential producer wants to switch out the current leading lady, a friend of Giralt and Garateguy, for a well-known actress. This causes a major rift between the filmmakers and their friend, and things don't get much better when the star passes on the project and the two are left begging at their friend's door. Upa! An Argentinian Film premiered at the 2007 Buenos Aires Film Festival.
