Maria Luisa Bemberg

Maria Luisa Bemberg (14 April 1922 7 May 1995) was a pioneer feminist, film writer, director and actress born in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The daughter of Otto Eduardo Bemberg and Sofia Bengolea, she was born into one of the most powerful families in Argentina, as her great-grandfather, German Argentine immigrant Otto Bemberg, had established the Quilmes Brewery, Argentina's largest, in 1888.

At the end of her life, Bemberg was working on a script, based on the story El impostor by Silvina Ocampo (a distant relative) which was made into a film in 1997 directed by her long time collaborator Alejandro Maci.
