Northward Bound: Lucia Garibaldi in Production on “Un Futuro Brillante”

Uruguayan filmmaker Lucia Garibaldi is currently in production with her sophomore feature which is currently lensing Montevideo. The filmmaker saw her debut feature The Sharks landed a coveted spot in the World Dramatic Comp at Sundance back in 2019, and appears to be still working with youth themed project in Un Futuro Brillante (formerly known as la ultima reina). Recently awarded some coin via The Berlinale World Cinema Fund, production companies include Montelona Cine’s Francisco Magnou Arnabal (who produced The Sharks) and Achtung Panda!’s Jamila Wenske (Compartment Number 6). Garibaldi teams with cinematographer Arauco Hernández Holz of Quinzaine selected The Employer and the Employee and TIFF selected The Moneychanger fame. This will drop at a major film festival next year.

Elisa (18) lives in a desolate and austere world where young people who come of age are forced to migrate to the North, a sort of promised land where “history is being made”. She is part of the last delegation that is bound to go, but a rebellious spirit starts to grow inside her. Elisa must search for her destiny conditioned by a society that seems to be dystopian but that in fact is not so different to the one that surrounds us.
