Darío Aguirre

DARIO AGUIRRE (*1979) comes from Ecuador and has lived in Germany since 2000. From 2001 to 2006, he studied visual communication/media at the University of Fine Arts in Hamburg. In 2013, FILMFEST HAMBURG showed his documentary César's Grill.

rated for 0 + years
Documentary Darío Aguirre was supposed to take over his father's grill restaurant in Ecuador. Instead, he went to Hamburg to make films. 10 years later, he gets a phone call from home: the restaurant is on the verge of bankruptcy. Dario flies home - a passionate vegetarian with the intention of saving the livelihood of his passionately carnivorous father. An almost impossible mission begins, as whimsical as it is moving, and it soon becomes clear that it's not just the grill that is in crisis. A film about a run-down family business becomes a film about the family itself.
