Uruguay isn’t the first country that comes to mind in terms of film innovations, but producer Gustavo Rojo is about to change that perception with La Casa Muda, the first Latin American film to be shot entirely with a professional photo camera that also happened to be filmed in one single 72-minute sequence shot.
Rojo informed us that on Wednesday, November 25th, shooting wrapped on Uruguayan film La Casa Muda (The Silent House), starring Florence Colucci, Abel Tripaldi, and Gustavo Alonso. He writes, “It was four days of intense work, based on a carefully planned project, shot to shot, scene by scene.”
Directed by Gustavo Hernandez and shot with a digital SLR (specifically the Canon EOS 5D Mark II), La Casa Muda promises “a story with a lot of suspense based on a real event that took place in 1944 in an old farmhouse where were found two brutally tortured men’s bodies, without their tongues. Disturbing photographs were the key to solving the bloody crime.”
La Casa Muda‘s premiere is scheduled for March, 2010, after which it’ll hit the festival circuit. Visit the official La Casa Muda site for more info, and in the meantime dig on four stills provided to us by the filmmakers (click to see them bigger).
