This is me. Barbi
I am an Argentinian filmmaker based in the UK. I moved to England in 2010 after I fell for a lovely and slightly uptight British guy. He's now my husband and the father of our two boys.
I've studied acting and filmmaking in my hometown and galvanised by a short film competition for woman directors in 2015, I devised and made the low-budget comedy A WAKE. This experience provided the necessary training for me to write, direct and co-produce a more ambitious short, YOU NEED HELP, which garnered nominations and awards from Film Festivals around the world.
I think my work benefits from my advanced knowledge of psychology and my love for comedy. I am drawn to flawed characters, surreal situations and heightened realities, yet it is the tenderness of the relationships and honesty of the humour that serves as the beating heart of my storytelling
I am now in post production of my latest shortfilm, which I will hopefully be able to share with you soon.
FACT ABOUT ME
As a good Latina, I'm very dramatic. My stuff will make you laugh and cry.*
*If it doesn't, don't tell me. I will have a meltdown.
