Director Biography - César Pesquera

César never wanted to be a director. But he remembers very vividly when as a child his father took him to outdoor cinema sessions. Now he makes films, directs music videos, commercials and writes. His work combines the syntax of cinema with a taste for conceptualization and visual experimentation.

His personal works Tramuntana and Santa Ana have been screened at festivals such as Cíclope, SXSW, Sitges, Cannes, Slamdance or BFI London Film Festival among others. He has been awarded several LAUS prizes, a gold in ADC * E and a second prize in YDA Cannes. In 2018 Santa Ana won an honorable mention for the best documentary at the Salute Your Shorts festival (Los Angeles).
