Born in 1966 in Salta, Argentina, Lucrecia Martel studied at Avellaneda Experimental (AVEX) and attended the National Experimentation Filmmaking School (ENERC) in Buenos Aires.

Gaggero, she directed a number of short films between 1988 and 1994. Rey Muerto (Dead King) in 1995 was part of Historias Breves I (Brief Tales I).
