Directed by Eliseo Subiela

Man Facing Southeast is Argentine director Eliseo Subiela’s 1986 cult classic, a powerfully moving science  ction parable of a saint-like stranger in an even stranger land – our Earth. This critically-acclaimed gem has not been available on DVD or Blu-ray in the United States, until now.

A man named Rantes (Hugo Soto) suddenly appears in a Buenos Aires psychiatric hospital expertly playing theorgan. But who is he – this man with no recorded identity? Doctor Denis (Lorenzo Quinteros) dismisses Rantes’ claim of being an alien visitor as a case of paranoid delusion. Beatriz (Inés Vernengo), his only visitor, sees him as an intimate and knowing companion. And the other patients, intrigued by his mysterious intelligence, see him as their only source of hope. Inspiring, mystical, and unforgettable, Man Facing Southeast is one of the great science fiction films. 

Blu-ray Extras Include:

Booklet with Director's Statement and essay by film historian Nancy J. Membrez

Interviews with: Director Eliseo Subiela, Lead actor Hugo Soto, Director of Photography Ricardo De Angelis
