Narcisa Hirsch
(ARG 2014, Dir: Daniela Muttis)

Narcisa Hirsch is considered a pioneer of experimental film in the context of the "Argentine Avant-garde", which devoted itself to radical aesthetic ventures in the mid-1960s. Over several decades, the native German has (born 1928 in Berlin) built up a body of work that covers a conceptual and aesthetic spectrum achieved by few other film-makers in Latin America. Having actively participated in artistic happenings and experiments, Hirsch positioned herself as a cross-genre film-maker in the 1970s, adopting a political perspective on gender issues. She paved the way for a new generation of experimental women film-makers through the poetic impulse that characterizes her images.
