Love on the night shift
Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

The Argentine director,Adrián Biniez, composer and singer in the pop group Reverb, says that the starting point for his film Gigante was a sentence on his computer: “security guard falls in love with a supermarket cleaner during the night shift.”

In three months he had the script ready and he began to look for a producer. He reveals that he had always wanted to make films but he couldn’t so he went into music instead. “In Argentina, as I hadn’t studied cinema, I had no links with this world; I’m a total outsider.Whereas when I went to live in Uruguay as my friends are filmmakers, everything ran much more smoothly.”

The director, who has spent the last 6 years living in Montevideo is delighted with the result.“I’m really happy; just being here is already great, the simple fact that there are people in the film theatre is really exciting for me, it’s part of the prize.”
