Mohamed

It seems that everyone blames Mohamed, a Moroccan immigrant in Spain, because of his origins. Ignorance is the worst disease.

Director Biography - Sergi Rubió

I have been initiating my own projects as a Director and as a Producer starting from when I was a teenager, all the way up to the present as an activity which I have always combined with additional academic training such as 3 different film schools along with a series of retraining courses, always in the same area of communication and visual arts.

Director Statement

I began directing my first films when I was 15, always alone behind the camera, working all roles: not only as Producer-writer-Director, but also as Cinematographer, Camera Operator, Gaffer, Grip, Production Designer and Sound. I worked in this way, during my whole teenager hood, before beginning my film studies, when my only filmmaking experiences were the amateur films I made before that: little movies in Super 8, with my family and friends as my Cast & Crew.

Then, in 2000, at once I began my film studies in the school Micro Obert in Barcelona. As my first-year final project in this school, my teachers gave my first chance, to direct my first “professional” Short film, Mohamed, in 2001. I mentioned “professional” because Mohamed was to me, in a lot of aspects, my first time in a lot of things: not only I left of filming in Super 8 to filming in 16 mm, but also I could say that was my first “real” contact with a professional filming. Cause I also left of being me alone the Camera, to have a Crew.
