I discovered her through a wonderful video in NY Times: a fragment from the most recent Alberdi's movie (La Once). I will come to that video (and to La Once) in a future post (maybe the next one). It's really great stuff.
Born in Santiago de Chile in 1983, Maite Alberdi is a film director/writer/producer/actor/DP/editor/sound engineer. Plus film critic for la Fuga. As a filmdirector she has made four movies so far: Los Trapecistas (24 min, 2005), Las Peluqueras (26 min, 2007), El Salvavidas (70 min, 2011), and La Once (24 min, 2014). A movie where she is co-producer and co-writer is Propaganda (61 min, 2014). Just a bit on her film critic: Maite Alberdi coauthored Teorias del Cine Documental en Chile, 1957-1963. I think I must tell more about all this. But firstly, the video from NY Times that gave me the opportunity to discover Maite Alberdi.
