Teddy Williams


Eduardo Williams (b. 1987, Argentina) studied at the Universidad del Cine in Buenos Aires, before joining Le Fresnoy – Studio national des arts contemporains in France. His first short films were set in his home country of Argentina but his more recent works, shot in various locations across the globe, have come to include the uncertainty of travelling and the spontaneous connections made in unfamiliar contexts as a central part of his filmmaking process. William’ short films Could See a Puma (2011) and I’m falling (2013) premiered at Cinéfondation and Director’s Fortnight at Cannes Film Festival followed by Tôi quên rôi ! which had its premiere at FIDMarseille. Retrospectives of his short films are organized, among other places, at the Cinémathèque Française in Paris and at Valdivia International Film Festival in Chile. His first feature, The Human Surge (2016), won the Filmmakers of the Present prize at the 69th Locarno Film Festival and was later shown at Toronto International Film Festival – Wavelengths, New York Film Festival – Projections, Tate Cinema, Viennale and Mar Del Plata International Film Festival.
