Who are you and what’s your filmmaking background?
My name is Jeff Zorrilla. I am an American filmmaker currently working in Buenos Aires. I studied film in Santa Cruz, California and then worked in production in New York for 5 years until moving to Argentina.
What are you working on right now?
I am currently finishing a documentary about sexual tourism in Latin American through the viewpoint of the clients. I also work constantly on experimental cinema in Super 8 and give workshops every week where my students film, develop and project a Super 8 film all in one day.
What are you promoting?
I am promoting my film San Guerrero which is a portrait of an American expatriot living in Buenos Aires and working as a historical tour guide during the day and a sexual tour guide during the night. This super 8 short film is a first glimpse of my documentary about sexual tourism, Monger.
What do you want the audience to take away from your films?
I want the audience to relearn the beauty of the analog image and to constantly question the realities we are sold from our youth.
What is something bizarre about you?
I film, develop, and project all of my own films.
What currently inspires you?
I am inspired by the underground art movement in the city of Buenos Aires where artists can manage to create a striving community without the impositions of the market.
