Sounds Of The World

15 06 2012

This week I was working in the local production of “Sounds of the World – Buenos Aires” a project created by StereoSonique Films together with Coca-Cola and Televisa to present the major cities in Latin America through its most representative images and sounds.

With an extensive tour we were able to capture all the diversity, large parks and the streets filled with buses, the old world cafes, colonial architecture, the tango, fun outdoor markets and the hectic pace of the most visited city in South America.

Stay tuned, we will be able to watch it soon!

17 06 2008

silverdocs-logoToday was the first screening day of the Silverdocs AFI/Discovery Channel Documentary Festival in its sixth year at Washington DC. I was lucky to be there to see the Documentary “Mechanical Love” by Phie Ambo, where Robotics professor Hiroshi Ishiguro may believe he’s helping humanity by developing artificial life-forms so advanced you could soon find yourself closer to them than your neighbor or family dog.
There are more than 100 documentaries showing this year at the AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center, Round House Theatre, and Discovery HD Theater. So go and get yourself a program!
