Lucrecia Martel

Posted on Posted in TALENTS

Born in 1966 in Salta in the North of Argentina, Lucrecia Martel settled down in Buenos Aires where she attended the ENERC (National Film School). Film scholar Paul Julian Smith wrote in 2015 that she is “arguably the most critically acclaimed auteur in Spanish-language art cinema outside Latin America” and that her “transnational auteurism and demanding features have earned her a hard-won reputation in the world art cinema festival circuit.” Similarly, film scholar Haden Guest has called her “one of the most prodigiously talented filmmakers in contemporary world cinema.” In April 2018, Vogue called her “one of the greatest directors in the world right now”.
