Synopsis

Sergio Garces is a struggling Buenos Aires actor afflicted with anger management issues and bad luck. When his nose gets broken in a bike accident, a series of unfortunate events ensues, including an affair with an American film executive that takes an unexpectedly dark turn.

Like Sergio’s covers, “Initials SG” riffs on classic cool, nodding to “Goodfellas, Breathless”, and the effortlessly chic sensuality of an icon like Gainsbourg. From these reference points, co-directors Rania Attieh and Daniel Garcia create a world that is entirely their own, toggling between deadbeat dramedy, crime caper, and even surreal bouts of black comedy.
