Director Biography - Ian Ingelmo Ros

Ian Ingelmo Ros (Madrid, 1979) comes from a family in which the preceding three generations were dedicated to Photography, so he had a very especial relationship with images since his early childhood. He took formal communication and documentary film studies although his true master was Víctor Erice, for whom he has worked as an editor and director’s assistant in some of his latest productions, from Erice-Kiarostami: correspondences (2006) to Stone and sky (2019). He has taught documentary filmmaking in Guatemala, where he made several shortfilms like El tanque / The Water Tank (2010). Return to Casa Ros is his first feature length film.

Our memory is made of images. So what if we could manipulate those images and make sense out of them? We would have the power to become whoever we want by mastering the art of our own life's storytelling. Return to Casa Ros is an opportunity to discover the magic of images and recognize that we all can use it.
