“I am very happy because the journey of the film has been incredible -he said when he arrived, accompanied by his partner, Dolores Fonzi-, and the truth is that being nominated and having reached this instance is something we must be very proud of.

It seems to me that movies are not defined by an award, but that movies generate their own life. And this film has long shown us that it can speak to the audience very eloquently. And I think so Argentina, 1985 it will continue to be seen for a long time, in many places, and it will continue to be so.

Today at the ceremony, the people we were able to talk to had very positive reactions and gave us many compliments. I won’t tell you names, but with important people and people I admire, who have said very nice things to me about the film, so it’s already beautiful. We are very happy.

-What memory do you think will remain of this ceremony? A moment, or a feeling…

Well, I’ve been talking to Spielberg for a while, so I’ll remember that. He was very, very loving to us, so I will remember him for a long time. And also with Roger Deakins, director of photography (nominated this year for light empire), who was also very, very eloquent and very loving to us and to the film. So I will remember it for a long time.
