Director's Biography

(Barcelona, 1976). From a very young age he was particularly drawn to film, but it wasn’t until 1987 while watching Brian de Palma’s adaptation of Eliott Ness’ The Untouchables that he experienced a revelation. It was around that time that his uncle Juan began to give him issues of the magazine Imágenes de actualidad, which he devoured and horded with true devotion. The compulsive liar Terenci Moix was also a key figure during these years of initiation. It was at that time when, in the solitude of his bedroom, he came up with HOMELLYWOOD, a literal dream factory in which he wrote thousands of plots for films, creating his own casts and even posters. It was a fascinating domestic universe that ran parallel to that offered up by the media. His first forays into real images came later: short film projects, short films, jobs in television, in studios and his first documentary pieces. For years now he has earned a living as a set photographer. The Movie of our Lives is his first actual film.
