María Luisa Bemberg (April 14, 1922 – May 7, 1995) was an Argentine film writer, director and actress. She was one of the first Argentine female directors with a powerful presence both in the filmmaking and the intellectual world of Latin America, particularly during her most active period, from 1970 to 1990. In her work, she specialized in portraying famous Argentinian women and exploring issues of class and gender. Bemberg rejected being labelled a feminist, stating it was a bourgeois ideology. Her vast legacy extends to the 21st Century, with Bemberg being hailed as arguably Argentina’s foremost female director.
