“The Hooker & the Transvestite 2” Takes First Place in Filmaka “Hard Times” Contest

For these two working girls, it sucks to be hungry. . .

It took a year to get the results back, but there in. . . a jury made of 12 Hollywood a-listers including Wim Wenders, Werner Herzog and Colin Filth have declared “La Puta y la Transvesti, parte 2” (The Hooker and the Transvestite 2) the winner of the Filmaka Hard Times” short film contest.

The first part of the contest received more than 1000 entries, of which 18 advanced to the next round by popular vote and by the other filmmakers. These 18 filmmakers then received 20 days and $1000 dollars to film the second part of the first film (ie, the second episode of a web series).

Now, we along with the other monthly winners will have to produce another short film, and the winner wins the production of a movie!

So if you have three minutes, check out this short which features Argentine film stars Lola Berthet and Luis Machin, as well as theater star Luis Aponte. The 25+ crew featured local legend Director of Photography Jorge Crespo as well as the support of Ajaf Cinema and Ñandu Sonido.

Whether we win the second round or not, we are planning to make this San Telmo Production’s first fiction feature film!

  1. That’s very nice! I wish to see the movie too. I once seen a movie about transvestite and it was written very well and the actors and actresses are all good too. I hope you could also post updates on this movie and if it is shown in the US. Thanks.
