The Essential List

The Essential List: The Argies

Argentinian directorial duo on their country’s delicacies, the perk of good friends and loading up on film stock

The Essential List: The Argies

The Argies is a directorial duo made up of Ari Evasio and Fran de la Fuente. They're from, you guessed it, Argentina. As filmmakers they have worked with agencies such as Saatchi & Saatchi, BBDO, Grey, and created striking ads for brands such as Axe, Coca-Cola, VW, Schneider, KFC, and more.

Outside of work, we'd very much like to be invited over to their house for their signature dish - the famous Argentinian asado. In other meaty endeavours, you can find them chowing down on a 'choripan' which is potentially our new favourite sandwich and likely will be yours too. Find out why below.
