Mendoza gets ready for Verónica

20 07 2010

The shooting began for “The Passion of Veronica Videla“; the feature will be the directorial debut of my friend Cristian Pellegrini. The production is in the hands of “Pandito Films”, founded by Cristian and Andrea Puebla.

I studied film together with Cristian and Andrea in the Escuela Regional Cuyo de Cine y Video, and we shape an excellent team, so I am very pleased to see that the script that Cristian wrote as his thesis finally takes the screen.

The drama tells the story of Veronica, a transvestite from Mendoza who earns her living by telling the fortune. She has two passions: to study psychology at university, which is her greatest desire and, live in Mendoza, which suffers due to the existence of Article 80 of the Offences Code which prohibits transvestites walk freely across the street. Her life gets more complicated when she tries to go to college and administrative obstacles are imposed, also will raise the change of identity as a prerequisite to enter.

The movie will be filmed entirely in the province of Mendoza, Argentina.

Shooting in the Jungle! (First Mission 2009)

12 07 2009

After four weeks we are finally half way of the shooting of “First Mission”, a drama produced by IDTV film and coproduced by broadcaster NCRV. Written by Barbara Jurgens and directed by Boris Paval Conen, the story takes place in the Iguazu Jungle, in Argentina and Paraguay. Dutch, English, Spanish and Guarani are the four languages spoken in the film, and I have the task of being the translator and dialogue coach. Anniek Pheifer plays the leading role, Tygo Gernandt and Mark Rietman complete the Dutch cast. Eugenia Lencinas, Ismael Santillan, Leonardo Ramirez, Héctor Bordoni, Victor Hugo Carrizo, Matías Desiderio, Cristina Murta and Javier Moreira (on his first role) are part of the local cast.

The majority of the film is being shot in MBORORE, an Indian reserve in the town of Puerto Iguazu, Argentina, where the feature film “The Mission” starring Robert De Niro, Jeremy Irons, Aidan Quinn and Liam Neeson was shot 23 years ago. Some of our extras also played on this film directed by Roland Joffe, who is now shooting his new film “There be dragons” in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where my sister, the actress Dolores Reynals plays Carmen Escrivá.
