XXY: Argentinean Entry for Foreign-Language Film Oscar

XXY, the first film of novelist and screenwriter Lucia Puenzo, is Argentina’s candidate for the foreign-language Oscar nomination and the Spanish Goya Awards.

Argentine Film Arts and Sciences Academy selected the story of a troubled teenage hermaphrodite from a large pool of 79 features

Starring Ricardo Darin of “Nine Queens” and the Oscar-nominated “The Son of the Bride,” “XXX” beat the current box-office hit “La Senal,” a detective caper starring Darin, and co-directed by him and Martin Hodara.

Historias Cinematograficas, an Argentine production house run by Lucia’s father, the helmer Luis Puenzo of the Oscar-winning The Official Story, co-produced “XXY” with Spain’s Wanda Vision and Pyramide Production of France.
