Argentina 1985 – Art department Masterclass.
Micaela Saiegh (AADA), art director of the film Argentina 1985, will share, along with Mercedes Gobernori (set decorator) and Ángeles García Frinchaboy (prop master), the creative process of this production, which obtained great international recognition at festivals around the world. The film addresses a historical topic that is very sensitive to argentines and international human rights, the Trial of the Military Juntas.

The art design had many challenges due to the theme, the research and reconstruction of the period, and also the realization during the pandemic. The event will be moderated by Marlene Lievendag (AADA). After the presentation, a Q & A will be opened with the attendees. For her work, Micaela Saiegh has won the Coral Award for Best Art Direction at the 43rd Havana Film Festival, the Platino Award, the Condor de plata Award, and the Premio Sur from the Argentine Film Academy.

The masterclass will be in person at a cultural center in Buenos Aires, and will close with a toast between colleagues and the audience present. The event will be recorded and uploaded to AADA´s youtube channel.
