The Aerial ( La Antena)
In the City Without a Voice, only faceless singer the Voice can still vocalize. Everyone else has lost the power of speech as they let Mr. TV's broadcasts speak for them. But when Mr. TV kidnaps the Voice, things change.
La Antena (The Aerial) is an Argentine drama film, written and directed by acclaimed film director Esteban Sapir. The denizens of a nameless city "in the year XX" have lost their voices. People communicate by mouthing out words that are spelled mid-air. The only person who has kept the use of her voice is La Voz ("the voice"), a singer working for the sole TV channel broadcast in the city, run by Mr. TV, who desires La Voz.
This wonderfully original little film is filled with tacit menace and ominous symbolism; it's a work of curious and unsettling beauty.
