Julio Torres & Tilda Swinton Face Artistic Odds In A24’s ‘Problemista’

Today, A24 released a new trailer for their next film, Problemista, starring Julio Torres, Tilda Swinton, Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA, Isabella Rossellini. So far, A24 has been on quite a roll with audiences everywhere with titles like Beau is Afraid and The Whale gaining critical acclaim. With a clear focus on artistic expression through whatever the director has in mind, it’s no wonder that Problemista takes the studio’s art-house style to a wildly abstract territory.

Debuting earlier at SXSW, the film came out to positive critical acclaim, which seems to have put this film on the radar of curious movie-goers. While the trailer does put the film’s palette in ways subtle and full blast, there’s also a strong message integrated within the story that resonates strongly with anyone who could be facing similar circumstances.

You can check out the film’s synopsis and the trailer for Problemista down below. The film comes out August 4 in the United States.

Alejandro is an aspiring toy designer from El Salvador, struggling to bring his unusual ideas to life in New York City. As time on his work visa runs out, a job assisting an erratic art-world outcast becomes his only hope to stay in the country and realize his dream. From writer/director Julio Torres comes a surreal adventure through the equally treacherous worlds of New York City and the U.S. Immigration system.
