|Occupation||Film director, screenwriter and film producer|
Rejtman studied cinema at the Escuela Panamericana de Arte in Buenos Aires. He then studied filmmaking at New York University, where he had to make one short per week and had to shoot with what was available.
At NYU he established a mode of production embraced by many other young Argentine filmmakers, both before and since: that is, the art of working with a small budget.
In 2019, Rejtman released a comedic short film, Shakti and explained that is about "a Jewish young man, the death of his grandmother, depression, Hare Krishnas, Pesach (Passover), and potato knishes."
Rejtman uses a minimalist style when making films. He said, "When I made Rapado, I felt that Argentine cinema had too much dialogue, and bad dialogue at that. I hate adornments, I hate artifice, I hate anything that's unnecessary, because there really is nothing beyond the screen."
