Parabellum

Parabellum

“Fitfully amusing and pleasingly unpredictable,” wrote Variety about Rinner’s debut film, which celebrated its world premiere in the competition of the IFF Rotterdam 2015. “The disturbing final sequence leaves a lasting impression and, together with what came before, marks Rinner as an interesting voice to follow.” Hernán, a middle-aged geologist, arrives with a group of strangers to an isolated house on the area of Argentina’s Tigre Delta. Amongst housewives, professionals and an elderly tennis instructor, Hernán constitutes part of a middle-class community that has left their comfortable lives of suburban Buenos Aires. Together, they train, following strict guidelines for what seems to be the preparation for the end of the world.

Lukas Valenta Rinner, born 1985 in Salzburg, moved to Spain at the age of 18, then to Argentina, where he studied film at the Universidad del Cine in Buenos Aires. He made his first short film, CARTA A FUKUYAMA, in 2010, which was shown at the Diagonale 2011. In 2012 he founded the Argentinian-Austrian production company Nabis Filmgroup, which produced his debut film PARABELLUM.
