Narcisa Hirsch

Born in Germany in 1928 and a resident in Argentina since her early childhood, Narcisa Hirsch has been a pivotal figure in Latin American experimental cinema since the sixties. She began her career as a painter and performance artist before experimenting with 16mm and Super 8 film, collaborating early on with an informal, loosely knit collective that included such key filmmakers as Claudio Caldini, Marie Louise Alemann, Juan José Mugni and Horacio Vallereggio. Since the late sixties, she has created an enormous body of work largely inspired by her domestic life, the rural landscapes of Patagonia.
