Director Biography - Anthony Xavier, Xavier Gonz

He was born in Caracas on July 23, 1998. He lived in the Jose Felix Ribas neighborhood until he was 15 years old. His first camera (handycam) was obtained at 14 with which he made videos for the internet. He moved to El Vigía looking for a more quiet place and there he discovered the School of Audiovisual Media in the city of Mérida two hours from the town where he currently studies at the Faculty of Humanities of the University of the Andes.

Director Statement

One of the reasons I moved to El Vigia was because of a fact that occurred in 2013 marking my life. The death of a relative in a car accident. The feeling I experience with this misfortune enlightens me. Not only that, I also wanted to make a metaphor about people who have lost some values ​​and perform acts that affect seconds or thirds without even caring, something that is currently experienced a lot among the people of my nation. This is how SOLSTICIO came about.
