i just found out through my aunt in montevideo, that juan pablo rebella, one of the directors of 25 watts and whisky commited suicide today at 4am. he was 32.

i found this article in spanish.

it says that his body was found by his girlfriend and pablo stoll. both 25 watts and whisky are considered the 2 best films in uruguayan history. both films received many awards. they've been working on a script for the next film. he was born in 1974 and studied in a catholic university where he started working with pablo stoll. the news of his death is a surprise and it's leaving a void to anyone close to the culture of our country. words cannot describe the personal sadness of this loss.
