Pablo Solarz

Writer-director, Argentina

After success with “Historias minimas” (Minimal Stories), a chronicle of three people’s journeys of self-fulfillment in Patagonia, and the box office hit comedy “Quien dice que es facil” (Who Says It’s Easy), Solarz is in hot demand as a scriptwriter and is preparing to shoot his debut as a features director with “Juntos para siempre” (Together Forever) in March 2008. Julieta Diaz (“La senal”) and comedian Peto Menahem will star in the story of an emotionally detached filmmaker who will do anything to reach his goal.

A legit director and acting-writing teacher, Solarz caught festival attention with “El loro” (The Parrot), a short he directed about a specialized vet making ends meet as a pet-store manager.

He is a prolific writer, with a collection of short stories in the hopper. “I write what comes out and then find outlets for it,” he says.

Juan Taratuto of “Who Says It’s Easy” is working on two of his scripts, the romantic comedy “Un novio para mi esposa” and “Pekale,” about an 82-year-old widower’s return home to Poland. And Alberto Lecchi (“Nuts for Love”) has picked up Solarz”s “El frasco,” a bus-driver romance.

“He is one of few writers who writes in images,” Lecchi says. “Every phrase he writes is an image; the details all convert into visible pictures.”
