As we all know at this time of year, Argentina’s Audiovisual scene seems to blossom like the jacarandas of Avenida de Julio. Two foreign films are filming in Buenos Aires this December, one a mega production starring Harry Potter star Emma Watson and the other a romantic comedy.
The bigger of the productions that is being shot in Argentina at the moment is ‘Colonia Dignidad’, A German drama directed by Florian Gallenberger which he co-wrote with Torsten Wenzel. The film is all very hush-hush and the film features Harry Potter superstar, Emma Watson, Inglorious Bastards star Daniel Bruhl
The story tells the tale of Sam Huntington who plays a young filmmaker who makes a sudden decision and buys a ticket to Buenos Aires to pay a surprise visit to Sofia, a hot Argentine chick he has met on the Internet. However this ever so modern-day love affair doesn’t work out as he had quite planned. Once he arrives, he discovers that Sofia lives with her artist boyfriend and his assistant. Argentina actress Andrea Carballo is playing Sofia and the film features a small cast.
