23/24 Hop Film

Problemista | Official Trailer HD | A24


Julio Torres, the creative genius behind SNL's "Wells for Boys" and the fabulously unique standup special My Favorite Shapes, writes, directs and stars in this SXSW hit comedy about navigating the politics of art and immigration issues while managing up the world's worst boss.

Alejandro (Torres) is an aspiring toy designer from El Salvador, struggling to bring his unusual ideas to life in New York City. As time on his work visa runs out, a job assisting an erratic art-world outcast (Tilda Swinton) becomes his only hope to stay in the country and realize his dream. Julio Torres' surreal adventure navigates the equally treacherous New York City art scene and the US Immigration system.

D: Julio Torres, US, 2024, 1h38m

Co-sponsored by the Coalition for Immigration Reform and Equality at Dartmouth (CoFIRED)

“Julio Torrest takes a simple story about immigration and human connection, and turned it into a comedic, surrealist fantasy that serves as an epic critique of capitalism.”
