3 Lights. A letter to politicians (2013)
Duration 30min.
Format: HD 1920 x 1080
3 lights. A Letter to the politicians, talk about
what we are as social body directly responsible
for the political power, which is not
disassociated from us but deeply connected. We
are all them in a way. Many of us would steal a
mobile-phone, just found on the street, and
many of us piss in doorways outside. That is our
political and social modus operandi from root,
but with less power. It's just a matter of
opportunity to bring out a greater capacity for
corruption. But Spanish is unreflective. This
movie is a letter from a potential emigrant, a
piece for everyone. 3 lights represent three
enlighted archetypes of a desperate Spain, a
mystical angry, dejected and lucid: Javier. A
sceptical survivor, and is placed on the role of a
mother despite being single, and her brilliant
analysis of our lack of responsibility. And finally a
fool, whom from a bathroom explains what a
politician should be.
The delivering seas (2016)
Duration 29 min.
Format: HD 1920 x 1080
In a continuous observation of everyday life in
the sea of the Gulf of Thailand, on the island of
Koh Chang, a calendar of miracles is happening
at the edge of a beach and are registered as mini
stories, a visual massage or a set of dances of
the nature.
In this string of small wonders, the camera as a
cinéma-oeile is following the strange beings that
the sea brings us from the hand of composers
such as Debussy, Cage, Bartok and Ligeti.
Not only tourists from Siberia come to these
waters or sellers of coco-sculptures, but also
water nymphs, jellyfish, beautiful insects and
strange sea creatures that inhabit the beaches of
Southeast Asia.
It all starts with the deafening sound of crickets
in the Cambodian jungle, in Angkor Wat, and
ends in Mahahual with a strange character in the
Mexican Caribbean beaches, where giant cruise
ships dock at its port with a beautiful lighthouse.
As director of feature films, he has produced and directed the

"En el cine, muy rápidamente, con la influencia americana que todo el mundo aceptó, una parte de ese trabajo documental se abandonó. Enseguida se tendió al espectáculo, que no era más que la misión final, digamos la misa de la película. En las películas de ahora, se celebra la misa y ya no se hace la oración. Los grandes artistas, los artistas honestos, dicen primero su oración, y después está la misa, con un público más o menos fiel. Los americanos han reglamentado la misa. Lo que les importa de la misa es la colecta: una buena misa es una misa con iglesia llena, que da una gran colecta."
– Jean-Luc Godard
