Description

LA SUMA, a venture by Esteban Schroeder, started operating in 2009 in Montevideo, Uruguay. It produces, manages and makes audio-visual films for both the domestic and international markets. LA SUMA’s film projects feature, from different approaches and points of view, a common continuity: the search for truth and memory. LA SUMA also intends to encourage filmmaking with a social purpose. In Matar a Todos*, and its reference to recent Latin American history, this is perhaps more evident, but the pursuit of truth is also present in Selkirk, el verdadero Robinson Crusoe**, where life’s true and important values are revealed. El Viñedo***, a film originally conceived only for television consumption, turned out to be a great example of Uruguayan cinema for Uruguayans, and it received a massive public support, stemming from its questions about contemporary social problems. Notes * Matar a Todos (2008) in a political thriller based on Operation Condor, directed by Estecan Schroeder. **
