Luis Puenzo

Birthday: Feb 19, 1946
Birthplace: Buenos Aires, Argentina
Argentine filmmaker Luis Puenzo is best known internationally for making The Official Story (1985), a provocative portrait of a middle-class woman who gradually realizes that by remaining complacent in the face of social injustice she is as guilty as the government she derides. The film earned an Academy award for Best Foreign Film the following year and was nominated for Best Screenplay. A former director of television commercials, Puenzo made his feature-film directorial debut in 1973 with Lights of My Shoes. Most of Puenzo's films offer probing, metaphorical portraits of characters and relationships in the face of larger sociopolitical issues.
