A portrait of Jorge Sarudiansky (his friends call him Saru), one of the greatest Argentine set designers, who has made around a hundred innovative theater sets in the last forty years.
Jorge Sarudiansky was a great man (he passed away in 2009), one of those precious architects of culture that are usually underrated and left in the background. Sarudiansky excelled and left his mark as a stage designer in theater, an art director in film, and a key figure of Argentine graphic design and advertising. What was his secret? “Pen, paper, and ass on the chair. The rest doesn’t matter”, he himself states laughing in one of the first statements in “Saru”. Because Alejandra Isler’s film includes not only the testimonies of friends, colleagues and people close to him, but also statements and interviews of Sarudiansky himself, commenting on the films he worked on, his graphic design pieces, or pictures from his family album. Saru is both a heartfelt and thorough portrait of this brilliant mind of Argentine culture. MC
