Hi all,
Hi Chris
here you have an interested Argentine frameworker who can help in any film
screenings or even in funding research.

I am in touch with young filmmakers and with the new films produced in
this far away country. So if any of you have answers of any kind, just
I think we could manage to generate some interesting projects.
