A romantic dramedy set against striking images of a dismantled capital and a powerful soundtrack, LILI"S APRON (EL DELANTAL DE LILI) is the story of a Buenos Aires couple whose lives are dramatically impacted by Argentina's abrupt economic crisis. When Ramón, a chef, is laid off and his efforts to find alternative income fail, their furniture is repossessed and his wife Lili suffers a nervous breakdown. Out of both a sense of responsibility and panic, he devises a desperate plan to generate some cash—but hides its implications from his spouse. Filmmaker Mariano Galperin approaches the poverty and social disintegration of ordinary people with humor and charm, balancing the love story on the edge of very dark satire. Capturing a troubled society where unlikely events have become part of everyday life, LILI'S APRON is presented in Spanish with an English subtitles. This film is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection, presented by the Global Film Initiative.
