Recording or photographing is strictly prohibited.

Soláas’s feature debut is a vérité chronicle of final examinations at Argentina’s public universities, in which students from a wide array of disciplines—botany, anatomy, astronomy, law, physics, music—prepare for, worry about, and ultimately partake in oral tests. Soláas trains her focus on a diverse and disparate group of 12 such students, capturing the intensity, nerves, and pressure bound up in their by turns dramatic and absurd experience of the examinations. A singular work of observation and pathos, The Faculties offers a thought-provoking meditation on the contemporary state of education and marks an auspicious debut for Soláas.
