Evita (Documentary). 2007. Documentary on Eva Duarte, former First Lady of Argentina. Evita, the illegitimate child without social or economic standing, was determined to make it big in the world of entertainment. Her love affair with a rising political star (Juan Domingo Perón) transformed her into a vital part of Perón's plans to seduce a nation. The charming Evita became a skilled public speaker that fitted perfectly with politics in Argentina. Just imagine Marilyn Monroe with the charisma of Princess Diana, elevated by Joseph Goebbels's propaganda machine as the indisputable Spiritual Leader of the Nation. The documentary appears to be fair, perhaps the first biography on the subject that strives to be balanced. Evita was screened at the Virginia Film Festival, in Charlottesville, on November 4, 2011.

The Great Pretender. Official Selection of the International Film Festival of Buenos Aires (BAFICI), 2007. Released in Uruguay as "No a los papelones". Release in Argentina as El gran simulador. The documentary presents Montes-Bradley's quest to find Nahuel Maciel, a journalist who fifteen years before fooled the press core by posing as a native from the Mapuche nation in Patagonia. Disguised as Chief Nahuel the impostor sold alleged interviews with Gabriel García Márquez, Umberto Eco, Mario Vargas Llosa and others to prestigious local newspapers such as El Cronista Comercial. Nahuel Maciel later published a book with a bogus interview with the Colombian Nobel Prize preceded by a foreword by Eduardo Galeano. Montes-Bradley finally finds Maciel some 300 miles from Buenos Aires in a frontier town called Gualeguaychú where Maciel was working close to the leadership of a group of environmentalists battling a paper-mill in the Argentina–Uruguay border. The film is witty, provocative and politically incorrect. El gran simulador was initially banned from theatres in Argentina for its politics, and it was effectively released in Uruguay (across the border) with good B.O. results. However, the film was shown as part of the Official Selection of the Buenos Aires International Independent Film Festival (BAFICI), 2007. On the director's request the film did not participate "in competition" to avoid further turmoil. Two years later, in April 2008, El gran simulador was finally released in Argentina by Editorial Perfil, the opposition media conglomerate own by Jorge Fontevecchia. HD | 75 min. 35 mm.

El sekuestro (Feature Film). Miami Beach: Iruña Films. 1997. (The KidNapping) Satire-Farse. El Sekuestro depicts an absurd revolutionary movement in Rio Hondo, a fictitious republic "lost somewhere in America," "outsider" Bruno (Tobias Meincke, from Germany) runs a classified ad for accomplices in a kidnapping. Joining the cause are a prostitute, Carmen (Sandra Ballesteros, from Argentina), an unemployed steel worker, Mario (Adam Black, of Spain), and a pretty boy, Luis (Luis Fernández, of Venezuela) all of whom want to change their own lives, but without the least interest in creating a socialist Utopia. They kidnap businessman Renato Cefalú (Lázaro Pérez, of Cuba) who doesn't have anywhere near the ransom the outlaws are demanding, and whose wife (Alex Pertile, of Italy) goes about seducing the chief of police in order to prevent him from tracking down her husband. An example of the movie's brand of cynical humor is the character, Mario. dreaming of what he'll do with the ransom money, he says, "First, a small repair shop. One or two apprentices, tools and a hole in the ground ... Then I get my hands on someone as poor as I used to be, I teach him the craft and, Long Live the F ..... Revolution! I'll never have to work again as long as the sucker does the job for me." The critics hammered the film following its premiere at the Mar del Plata International Film Festival, most of the blame focus on the sound quality. The director will argue that the soundtrack of the copy shipped to the film festival was sabotaged during the development process by groups that perceived the film as a mockery of Montoneros and possibly other revolutionary or terrorists organizations. However, El SeKuestro remains a director's favorite and is frequently aired on television (Canal Volver - ArteAr). "El Sekuestro" intentionally written with "K" instead of "C", has been recently interpreted as an attempt to ridicule Kirchner. El SeKuestro was filmed in South Beach in October-November 1995. On November 4 of the same year Montes-Bradley and leading actress Sandra Ballesteros, were married. The film is a political farce taking on the events that marked Argentine life during the 1970s. It has been said that the plot is an excuse to mock the struggle of the guerrilla organizations that confronted the military regime led by Jorge Rafael Videla.


Montes-Bradley directed music-videos at odds with the dominant trends at a time in which MTV was still in the experimental stage. Rumbera (trad. a woman who dances the rumba), is a song by Willy Chirino, (Sony Music, 1994. "Rumbera", the videoclip based on Willy Chirino's song is a film-extravaganza shot in the style of the neorealism with magic realism undertones. The seven-minute short was filmed in a single take, in the interior of a cabaret in South Beach. The Cameraman and Director of Photography was Scott Mumford. Rumbera opened the doors for other salsa music videos to be regularly programmed in MTV Latino, until then, exclusively reserved to Rock, Pop and ballads from South American and Spaniard bands and soloists. Rumbera, was filmed in Super 16mm and premiered in Havana, Cuba during the Festival Internacional del Nuevo Cine Latinoamericano, 1994. At the time, Willy Chirino just as Olga Guillot, and several other Cuban artists were blacklisted in their homeland.Dale Pascual (Warner Music Group) by the Argentine pop-group "Los enanitos verdes" was shot in 35mm in La Cava, 27 miles North of CABA. The song speacks of the hardships of the impoverished immigrants living in Argentina. La Cava provided the ideal setting, typical of neo-realism, a recurrent theme on Montes-Bradley's music videos, which emphasized the hard living conditions of the children in poverty. In the film the director staged the crucifixion of a nude boy representing poverty. The image, of a large wooden cross laying against the walls of a public school, with the Argentine flag on a high mast in the background was censored in several countries. "Dale Pascual was the last music video produced and directed by Montes-Bradley.

In 1980 Montes-Bradley was named US correspondent for El Heraldo del Cine, a Buenos Aires-based trade publication catering Latin America's film industry. He also contributed as a freelance reporter to The Hollywood Reporter. As the US correspondent for El Heraldo del Cine, he conducted a series of interviews with Jack Valenti, Menahem Golan, Renzo Rossellini, and Lalo Schifrin among others. His first contribution to filmmaking can be traced to Margareta Vinterheden's Man maste ju leva, Sweden, 1978. In the early 1980s Montes-Bradley worked as assistant editor in documentary films about the civil war in Nicaragua, and El Salvador. The latter produced by the insurgent media collective of Radio Venceremos. In 1984 Montes-Bradley establishes The Entertainment Herald, a bilingual film magazine distributed by subscription and at film festivals in Europe and Latin America. In 1986, he was appointed as Director of International Sales at Filmtrust Motion Picture Licensing, an independent production and distribution company based in Los Angeles. Three years later, Montes-Bradley joins producer Javier Gracia to write, produce, and direct Double Obsession, a straight-to-video thriller released by Columbia Tri-Star starring Maryam d'Abo, Margaux Hemingway, Scott Valentine and Frederick Forrest. In 1995 he married actress Sandra Ballesteros, leading-lady in "El seKuestro" (The Kidnapping), a politically-incorrect satiric-parody about a guerrilla group in the imaginary Latin American nation of Rio Hondo. "El seKuestro” received negative reviews, and ultimately became a cult movie, as well as Montes-Bradley's last known fiction. In 1997 Montes-Bradley returned to the documentary format with "Soriano" a biographical-sketch about Argentine writer Osvaldo Soriano. Soriano would be the first of more than thirty documentary portrayals of intellectuals, artists, and writers to follow. Montes-Bradley has often been credited under pseudonym such as Diana Hunter, and Rita Clavel. He's credited under his own name and with pseudonyms including Diana Hunter, Ana Lobos, Cándida Beltran, Emma Padilla, Lupe Vélez y Rita Clavel, pen-names inspired in leading ladies from the Mexican silent era.


Montes-Bradley came of age during the 1960s in Buenos Aires. In 1973 he was admitted to Colegio Nicolás Avellaneda. On May 25, 1973, President Lanusse is succeeded by president Cámpora ending seven years of military rule. In June of that same year, Montes-Bradley joined the Unión de Estudiantes Secundarios (UES). The deaths of Pablo Picasso, Pablo Casals, Pablo Neruda and Víctor Jara, all of which occurred that year, had a profound impact on him and in his generation. Montes-Bradley recalls 1973 as a milestone: "... because of the unique experience of living in a home engulfed by music and poetry in a country at the brink Civil War." On March 24, 1976, general Videla led a military Coup d'état deposing president Isabelita, thus inaugurating an era of state-sponsored terror resulting in the death and despairing of thousands. In 1979 he relocated to New York.


Eduardo Montes-Bradley (born July 1960) is an award-winning documentarian. His early work dates back to the early 1980s social conflicts in Central America. In the late 1990s he developed a series of biographical essays on Latin American intellectuals and writers such as Jorge Luis Borges, and Julio Cortázar for the now-defunct Contrakultura Films. His documentary films also explored the Caribbean and Afro-Brazilian cultures in films like Samba On Your Feet. In 2008 Montes-Bradley co-founded Heritage Film Project a publishing effort with an academic approach producing films on Holocaust survivors, social activists, history, literature, science and the arts. Most of these films are available through academic and public libraries and have been shown on American and European television. In December 2019, the Ministry of Culture of the City of Buenos Aires presented "From Here and There: A Montes-Bradley Retrospective”, including nineteen documentaries produced in Argentina, United States, Brazil and Germany between 1999 and 2019. Montes-Bradley's written essays have been translated and published by Random House, Sperling & Kupfer, Editorial Norma, and Editorial Sudamericana.


Los cuentos del timonel (Tells of the Helmsman) Biographical sketch on Osvaldo Bayer, a controversial political figure, a journalist and historian born in the German Colonies of Santa Fe province in 1927. However, Mr Bayer grew up in Buenos Aires, amidst the German community of barrio Belgrano where Bayer continued to live in the Summers of Argentina thus alternating with Linz Am Rhien from Summer to Summer. From this period in Belgrano Bayer evoques the Adolf Hitler's birthday being celebrated by thousands at the German Club - Club Albatros "They came in into the streets of Belgrano in a caravan, often lead by the German Ambassador to Argentina Baron Edmund von Thurman. According to Bayer, when the ambassador arrived at the German Club the band will start playing Hitler's favorite tune the Badonviller Marsch. However, the director preferred to capture "the other Osvaldo Bayer" the one living significantly more comfortable in Linz am Rhein. After its release in Buenos Aires, "Los cuentos del timonel" was awarded Best Documentary by the Argentine Film Critics Association 2002. The film finds Bayer a witness of privilege to the second half of the 20th century in Latin America and Europe, which seems to be a constant theme in Montes-Bradley documentary work. Bayer's recollections on camera include a highly politicized period during the Peronist regime, in which he worked as helmsman on a river Navy boat patrolling the Paraná river between Buenos Aires and Asuncion. The title of the film derives from that vignette. With a peculiar sense of humor, Mr Bayer explains how the strikes against Perón begun and how his political involvement ultimately lead to his determination to leave the country and move to Berlin where he arrived shortly after the end of World War II. This chapter focusing on his experience during this period is quite eloquent and revealing. According to Osvaldo Bayer's his apartment had a clear view of the Berlin Tempelhof Airport from where the Berlin Airlift was carried on. At a different point in the film, Bayer also recalls the night the Berlin Wall was built and further describes the hazards of everyday life with skyrocketing inflation. During the making of this documentary film between Linz Am Rhien and Berlin, Bayer also explores his relationship with Paco Urondo, Julio Cortázar, Hector Olivera, Osvaldo Soriano, Rodolfo Walsh and others. Los cuentos del timonel was filmed using a Bolex 16mm and a Sony Handycam DCR-VX1000.


Ismael Viñas: Witness of a Century. Original title: Ismael Viñas: Testigo del siglo. Film based on the memoirs and recollections of Ismael Viñas: legendary political figure, economist, founder of Movimiento de Liberación Nacional (MALENA), former Undersecretary of Culture during the Revolución Libertadora. Viñas reappears in front of the camera after twenty-six years in self-imposed exile, first in Israel and finally in the US. During a series of conversations with Montes-Bradley in Florida, USA, Viñas reflects on his youth, on his brother David, on his father, a well political character during the times of Hipólito Yrigoyen, and a Federal Judge in Patagonia during the uprisings portrayed in Rebellion in Patagonia in the early 1920s. Viñas also recalls his imprisonment during the Peronist period and with particular emphasis his relationship with Ernesto Che Guevara, and Salvador Allende amongst many other relevant figures of the period. On release, the film caused somewhat of a commotion. It was acclaimed and criticize by extremist elements on the right and particularly on the left where the Ismael Viñas portrayed on the documentary was perceived as a traitor to the Marxist principles he once so strongly embraced. Directed by Montes-Bradley as Diana Hunter. Premiered at the Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema (BAFICI).
