The true story of Argentina’s most daring bank heist unfolds in this eye-popping live-action graphic novel.
Teatrocinema is one of the fundamental companies in the Chilean theater scene. Its origins date to the 1980s, with the inception of La Troppa Company, creating unforgettable pieces, like Gemelos (1999), and Pinocchio (1990). In 2005, two of its members, Laura Pizarro and Juan Carlos Zagal, reestablish it under the name Teatrocinema, a multidisciplinary artistic collective that fuses in its language essential elements of theater, cinema and comics. From this period are the pieces Sin Sangre (2007), El Hombre Que Daba de Beber a las Mariposas (2010), Historia de Amor (2013), and La Contadora de Películas (2015). Teatrocinema has performed at the most renowned international venues and festivals in the global circuit, including the Avignon Festival, the Edinburgh Festival, the Lincoln Center, and the Odeon Theater, in Paris.
Juan Carlos Zagal studied Dramatic Arts Performance at the Theatre Academy of the Catholic University of Chile, graduating as an actor in 1987. He co-founded the La Troppa Company with Laura Pizarro and Jaime Lorca that same year. Together they wrote, directed, produced and played El Santo Patrono, Salmon-Vudu, Rap del Quijote, Pinocchio, Lobo, Viaje al Centro de la Tierra, Gemelos and Jesus Betz. In 2006, he co-founded the new Company, Teatrocinema, and participated in the creation of Sin Sangre (2007) and The Man Who Fed Butterflies (2010), The Movie Storyteller (2015), El Sueño de Mó (2018) and Plata Quemada (2019).
