Jorge Preloran’s 1969 film “Hermógenes Cayo” (“Imaginero”) was recently listed as one of the ten best Argentine films of all times. In making this film, he spent months with the subject (artist Hermógenes Cayo) prior to shooting, and followed many of the subject's suggestions in the actual film-making. This relationship between filmmaker and subject was to be repeated through his career. Preloran made over 50 films in his lifetime, working in Argentina, the United States, Ecuador, and elsewhere. His wife Mabel collaborated on all of his films and co-directed “Zulay Facing the 21st Century”. “Hermógenes Cayo” (“Imaginero”) Kanopy. https://www.kanopy.com/product/imaginero-image-man-hermogenes-cayo Also without English narration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRUHZBZ-BlQ “Zulay Facing the 21st Century” Kanopy https://www.kanopy.com/product/zulay-facing-21st-century
