Born in Buenos Aires in 1939, he studied Philosophy and Literature at the UBA, where he met Jorge Luis Borges. In France, he was Robert Bresson’s assistant and disciple. Back in Argentina, he directed the short films Los contrabandistas (1967) and Los taitas (1968), and, with Borges and Bioy Casares, the cult feature-length film Invasión (1969).
