Born to Be Born.

The end of a year spent together with the first graduating class of the Congrés Indians school: a newly created public school that celebrates its first 9 years of existence and whose pedagogical essence is based, on one hand, on the trust in the child, a being with an infinite desire to learn, and, on the other, on the individual care of each student, thinking that each one has its own needs and its own learning rhythms. In a world in which the instinct to overcome leads us to conflict, there is at least one public school in which children are accompanied so that they are capable of facing their own ghosts and also so that they can confront, through dialogue and understanding, the conflicts that arise.


Barcelona, 1970. He has directed four feature films: Fuente Álamo, la caricia el tiempo (1998), which was discovered at the Seminci in Valladolid that year, Bolboreta, mariposa, papallona (2007), presented in the official section of Karlovy Vary and San Sebastian, and Tchindas, co-directed with Marc Serena, with 14 international awards and nominated for the AMAA AWARD in Africa. His short film Alicia retratada (2002) was selected at the Semaine de la Critique in Cannes and Oblidant Nonot (2010) received, among other awards, the Ciudad de Alcalá at ALCINE 2011. Particularly, his debut work Fuente Álamo, la caricia del tiempo dealt with the theme of childhood from the memories of the director himself. He received praise from filmmakers such as José Luis Guerin, Joaquim Jordà or Gonzalo Suárez and critics such as Carlos F. Heredero, Miguel Marías, Rafael Miret, Kathleen Gomes or Leticia Castañares. Since 2005, he has been collaborating in the Cine en curso project devised by the association A Bao a Qu, a project that works with film in schools and institutions in Catalonia, Galicia, Madrid, Portugal and Argentina, understanding that this is a very rich pedagogical transmission tool to accompany the gaze of children and adolescents. In 2021 he premiered Camino Incierto at Documenta Madrid, the film was WIP selected at MAFIZ in Malaga.
