    As a cinematographer and a director, I am interested in what the images have to say rather than the dialogue. I want to know what the images mean.

In 2005 he co-directed TORO NEGRO with Carlos Armella, a documentary rewarded the same year with the Horizontes Award at the San Sebastián International Film Festival.
