Ginger Gentile and San Telmo Productions Featured in “The Argentimes”

Buenos Aires youth orriented English Language Newspaper, the Argentimes, is running a story about me and San Telmo Productions in their “Ex-Pat” files section. It was great to sit down and talk with reporter Kelsey Marie Bell about machismo, my views on sex in cinema (there´s too much nudity and not enough conversation about female sexuality) and our latest projects, “The Hooker & the Transvestite” and “Slum Girls Soccer“.  Always interesting to see how such a long conversation gets boiled down into a few paragraphs!

When you put someone in the role as a victim, you dehumanise them.
