Dante's purgatory

This week Dante’s purgatory was declared of Cultural Interest in behalf of Buenos Aires’ city hall. This is yet another great award for an already awarded shortfilm.


One of my favourite professional activities is film producing. Unlike visual effects or graphic design, the production guild put to the test not only your technical expertise and artistic view, but also your social skills.
In that sense, 2010’s Dante’s purgatory (El purgatorio de Dante) was quite a test. Argentina’s late Oscar Ferreiro (one of the top ten villains of Argentina’s film and TV) was the main character, and with incredible locations, some of them no more avaiable for filming, Dante’s purgatory is an enormous film for it’s modest budget.
German Gugliara’s direction was clear and right, and he was a key element to coordinate a huge group effort.

The production crew, from which I’m a proud member did an astounding job coordinating the generous efforts of a voluntary crew, that included several professionals from film, tv and advertising companies.
Besides that, I also had the pleasure of making a part of the still images of the film, some of which you can watch here.

The film narrates the story of Dante, a overly proud tycoon who faces the Ripper, and makes a pact to stay alive. Stubborn, he doesn’t realize that the Ripper will make him pay for his worst sins, uncovering the past and a dark revenge.
