Real Talkies

Every cut is a lie. It’s never that way. Those two shots were never next to each other in time that way. But you’re telling a lie in order to tell the truth. –Wolf Koenig.

El Ambulante is a story of a 67 year old man, Daniel Burmeister. He is a dreamer, story teller and a jack of all trades. He drives his old beat up dodge from village to village with a scrap book filled with recommendations letters and news articles of the films he has directed. His mission – to make a movie in 30 days casting the villagers as actors and then premiere the film in that village and move on to the next village. His only condition is that the village provides him with boarding and lodging for 30 days.

He is a self taught filmmaker, who sees possibility and potential in very obstacle. The documentary begins when he proposes the idea to the mayor of Benjamin Gould and with the approval of the mayor begins to audition for the feature length comedy, “Let’s Kill Uncle”. The documentary film was so heart warming. Daniel enters the lives of people, makes them dreamers for a few weeks, captures their creativity and records it for them forever. Beautifully shot and absurdly funny, it is very hard not to fall in love with Daniel, his movie and the documentary. The film is a testimony to the lengths to which filmmakers go to make the impossible possible in the D.I.Y. world.
