(80' - OV Spanish, Tuwali with English subtitles)

On a cruise ship off the Patagonian coasts, a crewman discovers a magical portal leading into a woman's apartment. Simultaneously, villagers happen upon a frightening concrete hut near their settlement in the Philippines. Two stories are wowen into a cinematographic labyrinth where people overlap and lose themselves. Somewhere between dark engine rooms and middle-class living rooms, between the sea and the jungle, individuals observe one another with curiosity, scepticism and anxiety.


Alex Piperno is interested in precisely the moment just before the encounter – hesitant and on the threshold – and thus creates a cinema that is transitory through and through. Piperno was born in Montevideo in 1985 and studied film direction at the Universidad del Cine de Buenos Aires. His short films were shown at festivals such as Cannes Critics’ Week, Bafici, Moscow, Huesca, Sao Paulo and Biarritz among others. 

Window Boy would also like to have a submarine was written, directed & produced by Alex Piperno (La pobladora cine) and co-produced by Esteban Lucangioli & Araquén Rodríguez (Pelicano cine), Rachel Ellis (Desvia), Frank Hoeve (BALDR Film) and Armi Rae Cacanindin (Cinematografica). The project was funded by ICAU desarrollo y producción, INCAA, ANCINE, MVD Filma, Ibermedia desarrollo y producción, Hubert Bals Fund, Netherlands Film Fund and Fondo de incentivo cultural. The project participated at the Berlinale Scriptstation, Binger Filmlab, BrLab, BAL, Taller Colón de TyPA, Foro de coproducción del Festival de San Sebastián, Taller Latinoamericano de Guion del Festival de La Habana and EAVE Puentes Uruguay.
