DIRECTOR ANDRES BORGHI: I was born in Argentina in 1982 and I’ve been making movies since I was 12 years old. I studied film direction in a film school called FUNDACION TEBA between 2002 and 2004. I’ve made many short films and 2 feature films. Among the short films I made, the most notorious are OTAKUS, a comedy/action film portraying the obsession for Japanese cartoons with fights and flashy FX, as well as WORKING DAY, a film made in New Zealand and awarded by Peter Jackson, director of The Lord of the Rings. The making of Working Day is due to a contest held in 2010 and called Your Big Break, where the tourism institution in New Zealand called for filmmakers all around the world to craft a short film about the country. The script I sent, Working Day, caught the attention of the jury for its warm and funny tone. This work was chosen with another 4 (2 from U.S.A and 2 more from New Zealand) and we all traveled there to make our films aided by professional technicians. Once the films were finished the contest producer (Barrie Osborne) summoned Peter Jackson as the final jury and the winner was my film: Working Day! Now i’m finishing a feature comedy/action film called Born to Die and travelling around with “Alexia”, my new horror short film.
