EL AMBULANTE (THE PEDDLER)

Eduardo de la Serna, Lucas Marcheggiano, Adriana Yurcovich
Argentina 2010 84 min.

EaFor Daniel Burmeister, cinema is more than a profession; it is his life. He tours Argentina, going from town to town in his car, and meets with the authorities of each community, where he proposes making a feature fiction in thirty days’ time, in exchange for room and board. The cast? The local residents. His scripts are adapted to each individual town, and he makes additional money with the sale of admission tickets and DVDs. In El ambulante the camera follows the tireless and optimistic Burmeister on his arrival to the town of Benjamin Gould. Will he manage to make his film and premiere it again?
