Trivia The Summit

The movie was premieres for the first time at the Cannes Film Festival 2017. It has also been screened at Toronto Film Festival and Warsaw. Many critics have pointed out the similarity between The Summit and 'El estudiante', the first film of the director. In fact, many have seen that the main character in 'El estudiante', Roque Espinosa, could well have grown to become Hernán Blanco, the president of Argentina in this film. Santiago Mitre thought of Ricardo Darín for the part of the president of Argentina since the birth of the movie.
