Rodrigo Bellot

Writer-director, Bolivia

A driving force behind Bolivia’s small film industry, Bellot helmed, wrote and produced his breakout pic, “Sexual Dependency,” as well as his next hit, “Who Killed the White Llama?” a knockabout road comedy.

Bellot co-runs Bolivia’s first film school, La Fabrica, whose grads worked on “White Llama” as part of their thesis. He also co-produced “Lo mas bonito y mis mejores anos” (The Most Beautiful of My Very Best Years), the debut feature of Fabrica alumnus Martin Boulocq.

Bellot has just completed “Perfidia,” his first English-language feature. “I wouldn’t label it experimental,” he says, “but it has only two minutes of dialogue.”

In addition, he moonlights as a casting director, having worked on Steven Soderbergh’s twin Che Guevara pics “The Argentine” and “Guerrilla” and the French film “La Traque” (The Hunt).

Bellot is developing the screen adaptation of Luisa Fernanda Siles’ novel “El agorero de sal” (The Salt Soothsayer) and his original screenplay “Soccer Sundays.” He has also been teaching at the New York State School of the Arts since 2002.
