Quentin Tarantino was born in 1963 in Knoxville, Tennesse. An avid film fan, his time spent working in a video rental store filtered directly into the referential nature of films such as 'Reservoir Dogs' (1992), 'Pulp Fiction' (1994) and 'Jackie Brown' (1997). He is known for nonlinear storylines, neo-noir characters, stylised violence and use of popular music to soundtrack his films.

Born in Buenos Aires, acclaimed Argentine filmmaker Pablo Trapero initially attracted acclaim with his riveting, Neorealist-inspired feature debut 'Crane World' (1999). His emergence coincided with the rise of the ‘Argentinian New Wave’ alongside Lucretia Martel ('The Holy Girl', 'The Headless Woman') and Lisandro Alonso ('Liverpool', 'Jauja'). His status as a filmmaker of world-renowned cinema was cemented with ‘Lion’s Den’ (2008), which was nominated for a Palme d’Or. He followed it with ’Carancho’ (2010) and ‘White Elephant’ (2012), ambitious projects that balance the attraction of genre – most notably the thriller – with powerful social criticism. ‘The Clan’, which won the Silver Lion for Best Director at Venice 2015, went onto break Box Office records on its opening weekend in Argentina.
