PIN BOY
Argentina, 2004, 90 min, color

Adrian works as a pinsetter in a Buenos Aires bowling alley that has seen better days. Its a precarious job, requiring quick reflexes, fast footwork and an eye for an errant ball. While the profession faces extinction with the onset of automated technology, Adrian applies himself to its demands with a degree of intensity and thoroughness that cannot fail to impress.

Pin Boy is a quirky, elliptical feature filled with encounters, stories and observations that locate an absurdist logic and poetic magic in the seemingly ordinary patterns of our day-to-day rituals.
