Martín Rejtman (born 1961 in Buenos Aires) is an award winning Argentine film producer, film director, and screenplay writer.

He works in the cinema of Argentina.[1]


Rejtman studied filmmaking at New York University, where he had to make one short per week and had to shoot with what was available.

At NYU he established a mode of production embraced by many other young Argentine filmmakers, both before and since: that is, the art of working with a small budget.[2]

Filming style[edit]

Rejtman uses a minimalist style when making films. He said, "When I made Rapado, I felt that Argentine cinema had too much dialogue, and bad dialogue at that. I hate adornments, I hate artifice, I hate anything that's unnecessary, because there really is nothing beyond the screen."[3]
