We’re in 2045. Little has changed in Uruguay, except for one single yet very important difference: it is now forbidden to drink mate. Underground mate salesmen Moncho and Fico travel to the different towns to bring the dearly-loved infusion to their customers. One day they decide to do away with the middlemen and set out for Paraguay on the trail of the myth of pure mate. Mateína is an absurd comedy combining elements of popular South American culture with a tale of adventures, friendship and dreams.

BIOGRAPHY

Joaquín Peñagaricano and Pablo Abdala trained at the Film School of Uruguay, studying Art and Communication at the UdelaR and Cinematography at the S.I.C.A. respectively. Together they co-directed the short films La velocidad de los ceibos (2006, co-directed with Pablo Aguirrezabal) and Nuestra hospitalidad (2010), for which they received, among other distinctions, the AXN Film Festival 2008 Award, and the Audience Award in the Panorama Latinoamericano Section of the Curta Cinema Festival in Rio de Janeiro, respectively. They have also produced the documentary series Nosotros, Nosotros dos, Un pueblo al Solís, and Fiestas tradicionales. Mateína is their feature debut.
