Currently two directors at O2 are finalizing cinematic productions. The first is César Charlone who’s finalizing La Redota (The Fortified City). It was filmed in Uruguay, César’s native country and it’s also the country of the film’s hero José Artigas, who was his country’s great liberator. The film is part of the Libertadores (Liberators) series about heroes of Latin American independence produced by Wanda Films & Lusa Films and co-produced by TVE (Spanish TV). Besides La Redota (The Fortified City), there are seven other films in the series.
At the same time, Nando Olival is finalizing his feature film Os Três (The Three of Us), which tells the story of three young friends that meet in college and end up living together. Most of the filming took place in the city of São Paulo. This is a production that Nando completed in partnership with the photographer Ricardo Della Rosa.
Both productions are scheduled to be completed during the second half of 2011.
