Tato Moreno

The NAHCC and Sister Cities of Nashville will be hosting a meet and greet reception today in honor of visiting award winning filmmaker Tato Moreno from Mendoza, Argentina at the Ozment Law American History Museum in Nashville.

Nestor «Tato» Moreno is a documentary filmmaker who has won national and international awards. His film Arreo tells the story of a family that still carries out transhumance in the Malargüe region.

Moreno was born in San Rafael, Mendoza. He emigrated to the United States in the 1980s, where in 1992 he graduated in Film & Video Production at Orange Coast College in California and worked professionally in television media in Los Angeles, Miami and Connecticut, as an editor, producer and director.

Tato has been professionally immersed in the film and television industry for more than 25 years, mainly as a director, producer, and editor, working for DirecTV Latin America, ESPN, ACEQUIA TV Public channel, and as an independently producer as well. He has built high-performance teams, designed the work flow for new departments, restructured whole areas, and made documentaries, all with relentless passion, as he is known for doing everything in life.

The Ozment Law museum is home to a one-of-a-kind collection of artifacts of American history, organized in display cases with annotated notes by attorney Elliott Ozment. Each frame serves as a guidepost through history, marking significant turning points for the country and its people’s never-ending quest for liberty. The collection includes artifacts from Tennessee’s earliest Native American settlers, through the struggle for American independence in the 18th century, slavery and the Civil War, the civil rights movement, and pivotal events all the way up to the present time. As Ozment Law is an immigration law firm, numerous displays feature our uniquely American experience as a land of refuge for the world’s oppressed, such as various items from Ellis Island. Ozment Law’s exhibits feature many original signatures, including George Washington, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., many justices of the Supreme Court, Albert Einstein, and other icons from our collective past. The Ozment Law museum mirror’s Mr. Ozment’s particular interests in history, devoting entire areas of the office to Abraham Lincoln and the emancipation (with original artifacts from Lincoln’s death and burial) and an entire room devoted to the civil rights movement of the 20th century, with rare artifacts from King, Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and other leaders and memorabilia from the movement.
