During Argentina's economic crisis of the 1990s, nine year-old Eugenia and her mother Florencia live a seemingly colorful life surrounded by eclectic neighbors and an offbeat collection of extended family members. But for the wise yet precocious Eugenia, who must deal with her mother's drug addiction and generally dysfunctional lifestyle while keeping up this cheerful front, life is anything but easy. This offbeat and highly original film is a darkly inspiring story of expectations, acceptance and non-traditional family, highlighted by standout performances from young actress Luca Snieg and Vera Fogwill (who also co-wrote and co-directed the film with Martín De Salvo). "Matching style and originality with a refreshing lack of moralizing, KEPT AND DREAMLESS keeps the banner of Argentinean independent cinema flying high…" —Variety. Winner of Best First Film at the 2005 Guadalajara Mexican Film Festival and the Critics Award Winner at the 2006 Cartagena Film Festival, KEPT AND DREAMLESS (LAS MANTENIDAS SIN SUEOS) is presented In Spanish with English subtitles. This film is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection, presented by the Global Film Initiative.
