José A. Ferreyra


José A. Ferreyra

José A(gustín) Ferreyra (born 28 August 1889 - 29 January 1943 in Vicente López, Gran Buenos Aires), popularly known as "Negro Ferreyra" (Black Ferreyra, due to his mulato ethnicity), was an early Argentine film director, screenwriter and film producer. He was also sometimes credited as production designer.

Ferreyra began simultaneously directing and screenwriting for film in 1915, and moved on to success directing films such as "Palomas rubias" in 1920. His films tended to focus on lower-class family drama, most notably "Perdón, viejita" (1927), and were filmed on a low budget and with little to no script as a guide. Ferreyra prevailes through the 20s and 30s as a distinguished filmmaker of the masses, but was displaced in the late 30s and early 40s by big budget cinema. He directed over 40 films and wrote the scripts for the majority of them between 1915 and 1941, working with noted actors such as Libertad Lamarque and Mario Soffici on his screen debut, before moving on to directing.

He died on 29 January 1943 from throat cancer.
