Saturday Matinee: Boogie

“Boogie” (2009) is an animated Argentinian action comedy based on a cult comic by Roberto Fontanarrosa, and directed by Gustavo Cova. The voices of protagonists Boogie and Marcia were performed by Pablo Echarri and Nancy Dupláa and the 3D animated movie was the first made in Argentina and Latin America. The character of Boogie is an over-the-top caricature of a boorish, violent and fascistic American archetype, a type which was also skewered in William Klein’s “Mr. Freedom” (1969).

Members of most library systems can access the film by registering on Hoopla and viewing here:
