After being caught in the arms of her lover, Alessandra (Danielle James), artist Valentina (Mariela Santos) is given a devastating ultimatum: be heterosexual or be disowned. The trauma forces a duality in her, and her male ego, Valentin (Gustavo Camelot), emerges to take over. Spiraling out of control, her life is manipulated by seven bottles of wine made to celebrate her milestones. And in the magic of the seventh bottle, she finds redemption.
Writer/Director/Producer, Gustavo Camelot, hails from the "Switzerland of the Americas," Uruguay, and has also lived in Barcelona, Paris, Munich, Berlin, London, New York, and most recently Los Angeles. As a result of his international upbringing, Gustavo speaks four languages, Spanish, English, German, and French, and has a rich understanding of diverse cultural idiosyncrasies and aesthetics. Educated in Montevideo and at Oxford, Gustavo's critical eye for composition was first cultivated when he received advanced degrees in the discipline of architecture, which served as an appropriate foundation for understanding the spatial relationships inherent in film composition. He later segued into theater arts after attending conservatory post-graduate programs at Escola de Teatre Musical Memory in Barcelona, and Mountview Conservatoire of the Performing Arts in London. His performances at London's West End theatre district and in Barcelona garnered critical acclaim, and lead to his sojourn into film acting and directing, and a recent move to Los Angeles to pursue his filmmaking ambitions. Gustavo has appeared in numerous international films, television pilots, short films and commercials, and has finished an intensive film development program at Los Angeles Film School. "Vidrio Roto" (Broken Glass) is Camelot's first feature. Adapted from his novel, 'Memories of an Ideal in Coma,' and based on his short "The Seventh Bottle", and in his pilot called VAL/Val (the story of Valentina and Valentin), Broken Glass's cinematic twists and turns reflects Gustavo's diverse background by application of his multi-cultural heritage and penchant for languages into the body of work. Gustavo has also been a Project: Involve Honoree, a mentorship program from FIND (Film Independent Project - Los Angeles), sponsored by Eastman Kodak, Sony Pictures and HBO. Gustavo Camelot is currently in pre-production for his next project, 'The Tree of Red Stars', based on the award-winning novel by Tessa Bridal and already been declared of National Interest by the Uruguayan Government in April 2006.
Really aweful, acting was subpar and overdone. We watched about 20 min and turned it offPublished 8 months ago by Suzanne Lewis
