Problemista Trailer Teases Julio Torres’ Surrealist Take on the Immigrant Experience

A24 has released a trailer for Julio Torres‘ indie comedy Problemista. Torres writes and directs the film and stars as Alejandro, a young Salvadorian artist who must contend with a monster of a boss in his pursuit of the American Dream. As the trailer shows, Alejandro is a talented toy designer from El Salvador, now living in New York, whose work visa is about to expire. He has just one month to find someone willing to serve as a co-signer for his visa so that he can remain in the United States. In an act of desperation, he turns to his boss Elizabeth, played by Tilda Swinton, a quirky (to put it nicely) outcast art curator who makes a deal with Alejandro; she will act as a co-signer, but he must help her put together an art exhibition. The trailer, which you can watch below, teases a surrealist adventure.
