La pobladora cine is a Uruguayan production house oriented to arthouse cinema. It arose as the initiative of Alex Piperno to produce his own films and to collaborate in projects of other directors with an authorial affinity, resulting in regional and international co-productions. Our films have been presented in some of the most important festivals in the world such as Cannes, Berlin, Rotterdam and New Directors / New Films and include “Parabellum” by Lukas Rinner (IFFR, 2015), “Let the lights go away” by Javier Favot (FIDMarseille, 2020), “Window boy would also like to have a submarine” by Alex Piperno (Berlinale, 2020) and “Périphérique Nord” by Paulo Carneiro (Visions du Réel, 2022).
