Margot Benacerraf - Biography

Margot Benacerraf (born August 14, 1926 in Caracas) is a Venezuelan director of Moroccan Jewish descent. Benacerraf studied at IDHEC (Institut des hautes études cinématographiques) in Paris. Her two most well-known films are the documentaries Reverón and Araya. Reverón illustrates the life of the well-known Venezuelan painter Armando Reverón. Araya portrays the day-to-day work of the workers of the salt mines of Araya, a village in the east of Venezuela. The film was entered into the 1959 Cannes Film Festival, where it shared the Cannes International Critics Prize with Alain Resnais's Hiroshima mon amour. Benacerraf founded the Nacional Film Library in 1966 and was its director for three years consecutively. She was a member of the board of directors of Ateneo de Caracas, and in 1991, with the help of the writer and patron of the Latin American cinema Gabriel García Márquez, created Latin Fundavisual, the foundation in charge of promoting Latin American audio-visual art in Venezuela. She has received several decorations among them National Prize of Cinema (1995), the Order Andrés Bello (in two occasions), the Order Simón Bolivar, Order of the Italian Government, Bernardo O’Higgins Order of the Government of Chile, amongst others. In February 1987, Ateneo de Caracas inaugurated a Room of Cinema in her name.
