Pablo Diconca


Drifting on a raft, a man and a woman dance instinctively and choose the only possible escape.


Pablo Diconca lives in Montreal, Canada where he has worked in video, film and dance since 1995. In 1997 he presented his first dance film, Sauf Julia, launching him into the world of art video production.
Following extensive training in theatre and dance – acquired in Uruguay, his native country, as well as in Mexico, Switzerland and Canada – and his lifelong search for a personal language and his experiences on the international scene, he travelled the Western world as a dancer for various choreographers.
In 2001, he founded Meakulpa Productions, a non-profit organization that devotes itself to the creation, production and distribution of work related to dance and film in particular. Since then, Pablo Diconca has produced eighteen independent films.
Flying Days (2006), was presented at Clermont-Ferrand Festival, France, where an international sale was concluded with Canal+. More than 40 festivals have shown the film, worldwide.
Al Dente (2009) was part of the SODEC shorts selection of the year, in Quebec. Two Days and a Half (2012), his first feature film, has won the Best Fiction Award at 25Rencontres Cinema Nature, France and received honorific mentions in Mexico, Chile and nominated as best film, photography and director, in Spain.
In 2015 he got support from Canada and Quebec Council for the Arts, le Conseil des arts et des Lettres du Québec and La Fabrique culturelle de TéléQuébec, to produce ABISMO (Abyss), his new Dance Film. ABISMO was premiered in Spain, where it got a Creation Price at the FIVER.
