Marín Kraut’s debut feature had its premiere at the Rotterdam Festival. It is about a nurse who keeps a dark secret.

This Thursday premieres La Dose, Martín Kraut’s debut film, which is headed by Carlos Portaluppi, Ignacio Rogers and Lorena Vega.

The film, which had its international premiere at the Rotterdam Film Festival this year, stars Marcos (Portaluppi, who among other roles for which he became known was Morcilla in the series The marginal), on an experienced nurse who works the night shift in a clinic. He is professional, but he has a secret.

Gabriel is added, a new nurse (Rogers), who will discover what Marcos hides, and will take control of his life.

“When in 2012 I read the news about two nurses who confessed to having euthanized several patients in Uruguay, almost immediately I felt that it was the plot for a movie,” says the director. I followed the case with interest as I wrote different versions of a script in parallel that grew farther and farther from what had supposedly happened. The dose it takes the spirit of that conflict, the debates it produced and the themes it raised with a totally free approach ”.

“On the other hand,” continues the filmmaker, who studied directing at the Universidad del Cine, and trained in script with Mauricio Kartún and Pablo Solarz, “I’m interested in investigating what happens when doctors and nurses know that there is no chance of survival, but they must keep bodies alive as long as they can: the support and maintenance of the patient is also a very important and profitable business. This circumstance, combined with the immense power that some evening shift nurses like Marcos have, who dedicate their time to caring for other people in these conditions, can lead them to extreme situations ”.
