Director's Statement Collapse
I found myself very surprised that the Latin American film industry hadn't already made a film about a character as adorable as Prez, the Hairy Tooth Fairy. Being a director dedicated to animation and youth films, I seized the opportunity of being able to use the main character from one of the most current fairy tales.
Together with screenwriter Enrique Corts, we decided to base the story within the family comedy genre, as we believe this character to be closely linked to the family as institution, particularly with his connections to children, their imagination and their growth.
And it was precisely this factor that led to the fact that in our story, the day to day life of humans coincides with the fantastic universe of Perez, the Hairy Tooth Fairy, to whom as yet, no-one had given a body, face or voice.

About the Director(s)Collapse
JUAN PABLO BUSCARINI was born in Rosario, Argentina, in 1962. In 1993 he obtained a Master of Arts degree in Image Synthesis and Computer Animation from Middlesex University in London. After returning to Argentina, he first focused on major-brand commercials, then moved onto feature films, working since 1997 for Buenos Aires-based Patagonik Film Group. He has also worked on 3D-animation-related projects in the UK, France and Spain. His background as visual effects supervisor and executive producer on more than eight films, together with his experience as codirector of the animation feature Cóndor Crux (2000), enabled him to complete this ambitious live-action and 3D-animation feature, The Hairy Tooth Fairy, with great success: It won this year's Goya award for Best Animated Feature. Buscarini is a founding member of Argentina's Film Academy, and is currently sitting on its Animation & Special Effects Commission.
