In early 2009, Favio gave an interview that remained unreleased and in which he only talked about film. The result was a master class, and this documentary revives it, seeking to shed light on the Argentine filmmaker’s unique gaze.

There are very few icons in Argentine culture capable of appealing to both popular and elitist tastes. Leonardo Favio was undoubtedly one of them. An unseasonable Peronist attached to the liturgy of this land, the director, born in the province of Mendoza, was an artist at every craft but, above all, he was a filmmaker. This is how Favio: Chronicle of a Director recaptures him, as a man of film who fed from radio, acting and music in order to build up the handful of rhapsodies with which he adorned our cinematography. The testimonies from relatives, collaborators and friends updates the indelible tail of bohemia and genius behind the great Favio, whose voice overflies the entire film. This way, his life, as immense and lyrical as his characters, finds its well-deserved tribute. GS (30 th Festival de Mar del Plata Catalogue)
