About the Film

Alejandro (Julio Torres) 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 (Tilda Swinton) 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.

The Reviews Are In

"Torres' depiction of his character's transformation is a crowd-pleasing comedic highpoint that solidifies an already funny film as a winner."

Reuben Baron,

"Problemista is its own animal of comedic high jinks that will undoubtedly send your mind racing and itching out of beautiful perplexity. It’s quite possibly A24’s weirdest movie yet."

Preston Barta, Fresh Fiction
