In 1985, Pablo Novak watched as the picturesque holiday town of Villa Epecuén was submerged. Everybody abandoned the town, except for Pablo. Now, over 23 years later, this modern day Atlantis has finally re-emerged, and what remains of it has become Pablo’s home, and a place for his memories.

Filmed in 2013 in rural Argentina, ‘Pablo’s Villa’ has been selected for numerous film festivals in Australia and internationally.
