Caesar died filmmaker Luis D'Angiolillo

Argentine filmmaker, editor and author of great films as "Kill the granddaddy" and "power", died at age 72 following a long illness.


Argentine filmmaker Luis César D'Angiolillo, great editor and author of such films as "Kill the granddaddy" and "Powers", who died at age 72 following a long illness, was remembered as a professional "enormous generosity" , "warm" and "very supportive" by some of the people who worked or were close to him during his long and prolific career.

"It was very warm and very quiet. I also remember that laughed a lot when we were working. I learned a lot off him, he was very generous with all those around him, "said Loli Moriconi, who collaborated with him on" Fontana, the Interior Frontier "(2009), by Juan Bautista Stagnaro, and" Three of Hearts " (2007), Sergio Renán, among other films.

Born in the province of Santa Fe in 1944, D'Angiolillo directed three feature films: "Kill the granddaddy" (1993), "Powers" (2001) and "Norma Arrostito, Gaby" (2007), but his work in film he began in the late 60s as an editor, a job from which he took part in some 50 films.

Intimate and strongly linked to that world, married Mary Agnes Teisie, who began as a photographer sets and became the first director of photography in Argentina, while the son, Julian D'Angiolillo, already has two films in his credit: "Become pitchman" and "Body of letter".

Julian confirmed Telam that his father was "very ill" and said that after the wake, in the living lavalleja 1556 Buenos Aires, his remains will be buried tomorrow in the Chacarita Cemetery.

"I really liked being with him when talking with managers, it was always very interesting because it was a person who was very aware of everything, very informed and educated. And the arguments that led the discussions were very rich. Not down as direct instruction, transmitting by sharing with him, "he added Moriconi in relation to D'Angiolillo.

Speaking to Telam, the montajista also recalled that "always treated you as a couple, I never felt a hierarchical relationship with him was always a relationship of equals. I always worked very comfortable with Luis and learned everything without realizing it. "

Meanwhile, Ana Poliak, director and editor who 30 years ago was a student of D'Angiolillo at the Center for Experimentation and Filmmaking (Cerc, today Enerc) of Incaa, said that since then had with him a friendship, which it decreased from a year ago that the disease was diagnosed and began making a series of treatments.

"We owe a coffee,'" he said Poliak saying to him whenever they communicated, but in recent months, "the silences grew longer, I worried and I returned to communicate to know how he was. 20 days I phoned, because I felt the need to hear your voice makes. Since I found out how it was not me I could out of my head ".

The director of "Parapalos" said D'Angiolillo "was a wonderful person, a being of great generosity and solidarity. While I never worked with him, we were nine months working, walk through in the Alex laboratories. He was editing 'Wait for me a lot' by Juan Jose Jusid, I went to look like it was working and I was mad. "

Meanwhile, the producer Diego Dubcovsky, also evoked D'Angiolillo with affection and gratitude: "I met him in '92 working on a miniseries, one of the first made on film, and that project was assistant director in postproduction, with which my work was to be near Caesar representing the principal in the assembly ".

"There were six months of working with him lunch every day, to know him personally and professionally. There I discovered a very warm and generous guy. In a top-down industry where nobody treated you as a couple, he had a very affectionate treatment. Even, I think was the first person who gave me his script to read, and that for someone who was just starting was quite a compliment, "he added.

Dubcovsky, who later became his assistant in the assembly of a film Nemesio Juárez, said D'Angiolillo "was an obsessive at work, in the setting of each plane, and was not afraid to disarm preconceived ideas from the script seek new ways. "

"It was a very intuitive but also very composed type, occupied very well his role as collaborator, and above all, something that showed his humility, is that it could work in a narrative line for weeks, realizing it was the wrong and change again course without fear of saying that he was wrong, "said producer Daniel Burman films as" the party hug "and" empty nest ".
