The Oscar he won the Argentine film “El Secreto de sus ojos” should convene a discussion of all sectors involved in the South American country on film the future of the industry, according to argentina actress Cecilia Roth. Roth said in an interview with Efe that his country is “enormísimo talent” and that national film production needs the commitment of everyone, both financially by the government and an audience who go to movie theaters. For the famous actress, another Argentinean film has risen with the Oscar for Best Foreign Film “is always a push for people to go see more movies, allows for more production and it is to serve as Argentina’s production deserves.

“El Secreto de sus ojos” directed by Juan Jose Campanella, last Sunday became the second Argentine to win a feature film Oscar, after “The Official Story” achieved the coveted statuette in 1985 in the same category.

In February, “The secret of their eyes” was in Spain, the Goya for Best Picture and in 2009 achieved critical acclaim at the Festival de Cine de San Sebastián.

Roth noted that “not easy” to make films in Argentina and other Latin American countries because they are independent productions, with a low budget “requiring the support of each of the actors and technicians so they can be made”. “If Argentina does not carry a movie a lot of spectators to film the first week, down” bulletin board “and it deserves a debate all parts of the industry. The distributors, exhibitors, technical, trade unions, among others, said the interpreter, who has made over 30 films and also developed career in theater and television. “If supported, the Argentine cinema has long way to go here and abroad. It is a film that sweeps theaters, but here is not so, and is not, because if there is no immediate success removed. Then we have to support ourselves, change, make a ‘ Click ‘ “and look first to the domestic industry, he said.

The actress expressed its awareness that it is” very difficult “to U.S. productions whose support exceeds that of the local worldwide, except France, where they have a body for financial support, and India, where the public attends mass at movie theaters. “Our films, our artists deserve to be respected and industry projecting outwards and there’s a little war to be won,” he said. “There to arm ourselves with enough power to compete and be located where they deserve, but for that we need everyone’s support, “he reiterated Roth, muse of Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar, who has directed five feature films, most recently ” Todo sobre mi madre ” 1999, she won her second Goya award, and who has a desire to return to work.
