“Hasta Nunca” follows Mario Ligetti, a middle aged hipster DJ who produces an underground radio show in Montevideo, Uruguay. He invites listeners to share their intimate thoughts with him and a live radio audience on the air. Mario re-negotiates his public and private personas during the course of the film and enters into an extra marital affair with Julia, a divorcee searching for a new artistic spark. “Hasta Nunca” addresses the lingering effects of the military dictatorship in Uruguay, women’s bodily rights and identity issues. Callers’ voices on the radio provide an acoustic counterpoint for an observational investigation of this ramshackle port city, which retains architectural vestiges of its colonial past.
