Riding into town in his beat-up car, Daniel Burmeister, armed only with a camera, a few movie scripts, and a trunk load of ingenuity, brings a unique proposal to each Argentine village he visits: he barters with the authorities to exchange one month’s lodging and food for the creation of one feature film starring the locals. The Peddler follows Burmeister on his latest project, Let’s Kill the Uncle, as he single-handedly and meticulously oversees every aspect of production. With his nuggets of wisdom and unwavering patience and problem-solving, Burmeister’s hand-crafted filmmaking style and DIY mentality are both inspiring and hilarious. For the villagers, his productions become a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work together, discover a hidden talent, and have their very own 15 minutes of fame. - Lynne Crocker
