Director Biography - Juan Ángel Hernández Moreno

Juan Ángel Hernández is a writer, director, producer, editor and actor. Born in Jaén, Spain, he studied Media Production and Communications in Málaga where he graduated in 2010.

On the occasion of the first-ever national short film contest in his hometown (Rodando por Jaén) Juan Ángel co-created his first short film, Green Gold Fever (2013). The short film is a mockumentary that satirizes the consequences of the 2008 economic recession in Jaén. Green Gold Fever won the first prize of Rodando por Jaén as well as the Trópico de Europa Award at the Festival Internacional de Cortos de Almuñecar.

After a long break from the film and TV industry, Juan Ángel went on to study a MA in Digital Film and Television Production at York University (UK) and graduated in 2019. As part of his Masters dissertation he wrote, directed, produced and edited his second short film, City of Pigs (2019), in which he also starred. The project is a political satire that reflects on the dangers of populism and it was heavily inspired by the Trump era and the wake of far-right parties worldwide.
