ABOUT THE DIRECTOR:
I was born in Quito on January 29, 1988. I studied in the school "Liceo Los Alamos". At my last year of school I started to get interested in cinema and decided that I would do it my career. At the age of 18, I went to San Francisco University where I studied film and video. During the four years of study I participated in short films like "Despierta" where I was part of the art team. I was the producer of the short film "Bolsas de Té" and I have been assistant director in approximately 19 short films.
I have participated in feature films like "Prometeo Deportado" by director Fernando Mieles and "Pescador" by Sebastián Cordero, "Ochenta y Siete" by Anahi Hoeneisen and Daniel Andrade, "Alba" by Ana Cristina Barragan; "Tan Distintos" and "Instantanea" and "Aguejero Negro", a feature film that is in the post production stage, in all of them in the Direction team, in the last three as an assistant director.
As a Director ihas made a short documentary "Agárrate fuerte" (2009), a short film "Buenos días" (2009), "BOCETOS" (2012) which was part of the short film selection of the 35th festival of new Havana cinema. And In 2014 I directed my last short film "COCOLATA" which was completely finished in early 2016.
