Posthumous documentary by Fernando Solanas, one of the major Argentinian and Latin Americans filmmakers who died in 2020. Tres en la deriva del acto creativo describes the encounter of three senior artists and friends (Solanas, the painter Luis Felipe Noé, the playwright, actor and psychoanalyst Eduardo Pavlovsky) who met, with their relatives, to talk about their work and the ways to create it. More than a mere documentary, it is a film that proposes a common reflection on the art of making art and a heartfelt act of love towards life.

Solanas (Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1936 – Paris, France, 2020), director, producer, screenwriter, actor, musician, cartoonist in the 1960s he was one of the founders of Grupo Cine Liberación. He was politically and socially committed and in 1968 he debuted in the feature film with The Hour of the Furnaces, that will become a milestone for the Latin American militant cinema and for the cinema that will be defined as the ?third cinema?, which is an alternative way to Hollywood cinema and European arthouse cinema. In 1976 he moved to Paris, in exile, and only in 1983 he returned to Argentina. In 1991 he was the victim of an assassination attempt, due to his fight against inequalities and the criticism to his Country neo-liberal policy.
