The President of the Nation ordered the dismissal of Luis Puenzo from his duties as President of the National Institute of Cinema and Audiovisual Arts. This arose as a result of the multiple protests by workers in the audiovisual sector due to disagreements with the role played by the Institute and the crisis of actors and filmmakers hit by the pandemic.

Hours before his departure, Puenzo held a three-hour meeting with the Minister of Culture Tristán Bauer in which he assured that his management was “the best in years” and where he refused to resign. The former INCAA president had been in charge of directing the film The Official Storyl, which was the first to receive a Golden Globe Award.
