La Rabia -- Albertina Carri -- Director
Carri was born in Buenos Aires in 1973, where she currently lives and works. She is the daughter of Ana María Caruso y Roberto Carri, both abducted during the last military dictatorship in Argentina.
She has a son, Furio Carri Dillon Ros, registered in Argentina using a so-called triple filiation; he is son of a father, Alejandro Ros and two mothers, Albertina Carri and Marta Dillon.
She filmed her first movie, No quiero volver a casa, at age 24. This work was selected later for the Rotterdam, London and Vienna film festivals.
Her foray into animation techniques resulted in the short movies Aurora and Barbie también puede estar triste, (which is a pornographic short animation). This last short won the Best Foreign Film award in the New York Mix Festival.
Her second feature film, Los Rubios, put her amongst the best directors of her age. Los Rubios was released in United States and Spain after being shown in the Locarno, Toronto, Gijón, Rotterdam and Göteborg film festivals, and received the following awards: Del Público and Mejor Película Argentina in the BAFICI, Mejor Nuevo Director in Las Palmas and Mejor Película in L’alternative, in Barcelona. She also won three Clarín Awards: Mejor Actriz, Mejor Documental and Mejor Música. This movie, according to Julián Gorodischer, can be defined “as a reality show about the Memory”. Also, it can be defined as a film that marked a turning point in the way victims of the Dirty War are represented in the media.
Géminis, her third feature film, was presented in the Director's Fortnightof Cannes Film Festival and was commercially released worldwide in 2005.
Her last feature film, La Rabia, has been awarded with two FIPRESCI Awards in Havana and Transylvania, with the distinctions of Best Director in the Havana Film Festival and both Best Director and Best Actress in Monterrey Film Festival.
In 2009 she won the achievement award Luna de Valencia, in the Cinema Jove Festival, on Valencia.
In 2010 she created, along with journalist Marta Dillon, the TV production company Torta, through which she made the TV series Visibles, La Bella Tarea and 23 Pares.
During 2011 Carri has developed Partes de Lengua for the Language and Book Museum (Museo del Libro y de la Lengua); it's an artistic work about the mother tongue being a result of the historic process of conquest and the problems aborigin languages and oral and written tradition face in the Argentine territory as they struggle to survive.
In 2015 Carri staged the exhibition Operación fracaso y el sonido recobrado in the Parque de la Memoria de Buenos Aires; this exhibition consisted in five video installments with different formats: audible, sculptural and visual, forming an intimate and reflective corpus about the multiple ways of evocating memoria, with the intention of making a sensitive experience of the memories of the traumatic events suffered by the victims of dirty war.
Since 2013 Carri is the artistic director of Asterisco, an international LGBTIQ film festival that lasts a week and is held in Buenos Aires.
