Premiering in 2017 in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes, Mitre’s Political thriller THE SUMMIT (LA CORDILLERA), became one of highest selling movies in Argentina that year. Following the success, Mitre filmed 15 WAYS TO KILL YOUR NEIGHBOR (PETIT FLEUR), his first production in France. Mitre and Kuschevatsky returned with ARGENTINA, 1985 to tell one of the most important stories of Argentina. The film won the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film and is nominated for Best International Feature at the Academy Awards.
