    Spain

    Jo Sol began his work as a writer and filmmaker at the end of the eighties. Initially focused upon visual anthropology, he developed diverse productions in the free format of video essay practiced in India, Cuba, and Mexico. During this period he came into contact with professors of experimental cinema such as George Kuchar and figures of the literary world such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez. From then on he’s been alternating between life in Spain and life as a nomad, which is reflected in works that combine experimental practices with feature-length documentaries with a strong sociopolitical agenda. His works strike a chord on intellectual circles and alternative creative devotees.
