the power of silent films

El Chicle (Bubble Gum) is a film written, directed & produced by Karina Grinstein, and set in Buenos Aires. David, an Argentine in his early twenties, struggles to blow bubbles in a world full of love. A series of surprising encounters in a park will take him on an unforgettable journey of self-discovery.

When I met Karina Grinstein in Buenos Aires, I was immediately seduced by her idea of a short silent film about love. I worked for her as First Assistant Director, Assistant Editor & Distributor. This film is the first of a series of three stories.
