Pepe Puenzo


With a gifted eye to create stunning cinematic visuals, as well as the development of peculiar comic narratives, director Pepe Puenzo represents a double threat behind the lens. The Argentinean director has an impressive portfolio in the commercial realm, with advertising spots for Johnnie Walker, Burger King, Hyundai, Frito-Lay and VH1 to his credit. In addition to his commercial work, Pepe also directed the comedy feature film “Toxic Jungle”. Pepe's attention to cinematographic details can be attributed to his experience as a philosophy student at the National Institute of Cinema and Visual Arts in Argentina. His yearning for creativity lead Pepe to work with cinema full-time. Having gained experience with filming and publicity, first as cameraman, Pepe soon made it to the director's chair.
