Guillermo Francella, with hail in Córdoba

This is not a meteorological hail, but about the new Netflix production that has Guillermo Francella as the protagonist and La Docta as one of its main stages. We tell you all the details about the film recording.

Guillermo Francella

 Cordovan May began with a small revolution.  With the presence of Guillermo Francella traffic changed, the center froze and people went crazy.      The renowned Argentine actor becomes the protagonist of Granizo,  a Netflix film that  began filming in La Docta.   Production generated   an important movement in the center of the capital and an emotional revolution.   The Cordobese, among surprised, effusive and proud, welcome the entire team  looking forward to seeing the final product.  


What a hail!

 The film is directed by Marcos Carnevale.   One of the first scenes of the feature film takes place  on Calle San Jerónimo,  which is one of the most iconic in Córdoba and is part of the  central heart of the city.   The plot is about a famous television meteorologist who, at the  height of his career, makes an unforgivable mistake.  This character  becomes  the number one public enemy  when he fails to prevent a terrible hail storm. This mistake pushes him to  flee the big capital to find refuge in his hometown.   In the words of the director: "Francella's character will have to flee the big capital to find refuge in his hometown, which will result in a journey of  rediscovery as absurd as human.”

In the words of the actor

 Guillermo Héctor Francella is one of the most renowned Argentine theater, film and television actors in our country  , and whenever it took place in some production, he knew how to bring her to the peak of success.    Some of his best-known films  were  Rudo y Corsi, Heart of the Lion, Theft of the Century  and  El Clan.   One of his most important works was his protagonism in El secreto de sus eyes, which won the Oscar Award for Best Non-English Speaking Film  . He is considered  one of the most influential actors in our country,  he is  the face of humor and drama at its best  . It is the polarity  of the show  and, that is why, its received in Córdoba was very effusive  and even had the participation of some local politicians.

About her stay and work, Francella spoke  with different local media  and said she was   “proud and happy to be able to return to the ring.”    He also reflected: “Platforms like Netflix  are producing a lot  and  generating sources of work.  There are several series and films in pre-production. Traditional cinema today is a little forgotten to do because it  is very uphill to generate cinema as it was generated before.”

A 100% Cordovan director

For his part, Cordovan director Carnevale, who now arrived  on the international platform , remarked: “I always remained from here, that is never lost.   And to see that Córdoba has an Audiovisual Pole that starts to generate its own film industry, is great because everything is always centralized in Buenos Aires, but it starts to open.”
