Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2022: #90. Diego Lerman’s El Suplente

El Suplente

Now at the half dozen mark in his feature film career, Argentinean filmmaker Diego Lerman had Rotterdam support a couple of his short and feature films but the most notable items have so far been the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight selected The Invisible Eye (2020) and 2014’s Refugiado. For his six feature, Lerman teams with Barbara Lennie (Jaime Rosales’ Petra), Alfredo Castro and Juan Minujín (The Two Popes). We believe the project was formerly Literature Teacher but now going by El Suplente, this Argentina/Brazil production just began lensing last month.

Gist: We’ll need to wait for more news on the logline for this item.

Release Date/Prediction: Locarno could be in the cards for a world premiere, but Donostia San Sebastián is most likely a strong candidate to host the project seeing that he premiered A Sort of Family (2016) there and that he was at the Co-Production Forum there back in September.
