Storyline

Meet Daniel Burmeister, the most prolific filmmaker you've never heard of. Armed with a camera, a lamp for night shoots, and enough charm to persuade entire towns to join in on his dreams, this tireless, jolly DIY veteran rolls in his beat up old car from one backwater Argentine town to another, where, in exchange for room and board, he turns out a feature film in 30 days. Adapting one of his ready-made scripts to each town, he temporarily transforms these sleepy villages into bustling back lots and the bored populace into avid performers. Coupling high energy with irresistible salesmanship, Burmeister keeps in constant motion. It took the combined efforts of three filmmakers to keep up with him, and their camera is there to capture his every move, recording his reflections on life, his recollections of his past, and his remarkable ability to solve a host of on-set mishaps. From the first call of "Action" to the "world" premiere of each village production, The Peddler is a delightful ... Written by Los Angeles Film Festival

You'll forget it's a documentary
20 June 2010 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

At least that happened to me when I saw this film at its third show in BAFICI (Buenos Aires Festival de Cine Independiente). At some point I forgot I was seeing a documentary. Which, in my own opinion, is a good sign for a documentary film.

The peddler took me into Daniel Burmeister's life in less than five minutes. The rest of the film I felt like I was there.

The film has a good balance of photography, storyline and Argentinian country lifestyle. The way Daniel lives his life and how his arrival interrupts the other way calm small town named Benjamin Gould; were of great material to work with. Which combined with the expertise of the team behind scenes developed into an excellent film. This film is a must if you like country way of life or if you ever had dreamed about being a film director. But I'm sure a lot of people with different interests would enjoy seeing this documentary for a lot of reasons —as social background, just for naming one.
