Camila (Agustina Muñoz), a young Argentine theater director, travels from Buenos Aires to New York to attend an artistic residency to develop her new project: a new Spanish translation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Upon her arrival, Camila quickly realizes that her work isn’t compensating for the loss of her friends and boyfriend she left behind. A sensation at the Locarno International Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, and New York Film Festival, Hermia & Helena features performances by actors and filmmakers, including Mati Diop, Dan Sallitt and Dustin Guy Defa in Piñeiro’s first bi-lingual film.
