The Moneychanger
(Así Habló El Cambista)

  •   Federico Veiroj
  •   Uruguay, Argentina, Germany
  •   Cinemas of the Americas, Global Currents

Seizing on the shaky regional economy to earn a quick fortune, enterprising Montevideo money launderer Humberto Brause ruthlessly plays the currency markets, embarking on increasingly shady deals. Blinded by ambition, he’s soon juggling multiple illegal schemes across South America, but his success could come with a steep price. Though rooted in history, this idiosyncratic 1970s-set thriller bristles with immediacy as Humberto’s position becomes ever more precarious.

“An engaging character study of a man with little character, elevated by Veiroj’s unusual eye.”
