Nicolas Sarquis

Born in Buenos Aires in 1938, Nicolas Sarquis studied cinema at the University of the Littoral. From 1965 to 1970, he taught stage direction and history of the cinema and was director’s assistant in numerous films before he directed his first long feature « Paolo y Hueso » who, according to the argentinian critics, starts a new trend in the national cinema. His last project about the « caudillo » Juan Facundo Quiroga was stopped after two years of preparation in 1977.
