About the director

Dolores Fonzi is an Argentinian actress, screenwriter and filmmaker from Buenos Aires. She kicked off her acting career with 17 and quickly rose to recognition through her work in TV and film. Her most noteworthy films include The Aura (2005) and especially Paulina (2015), for which she won many important Ibero-American film awards. Blondi marks her debut as a director and was nominated in three categories for this years' upcoming Platino-Awards.

Press reviews

„Fonzi makes her debut with a film brimming with life, with hilarious dialogue [...] and a dedicated cast that harmonises beautifully. And making the film a party, the soundtrack includes great songs by The Velvet Underground & Nico, some snippets of concerts by bands and the long-awaited moment of shared listening to a hit [...] by Blondie, the legendary band of Debbie Harry, which at some points in the film you could confuse for Dolores Fonzi herself.“ (Alfonso Rivera, Cineuropa)

The director about the film

„[…] one day the script was ready; then my partner and producer Santiago Mitre said, “Now we have to make it, because scripts are there to be filmed.” One thing led to another and we got more and more into it: that’s how it came about and I no longer had a choice. now that I've done it, I enjoyed it so much that all I can think about is directing again soon.“ Dolores Fonzi in an interview with Cineuropa
