Director Statement

I was born in a small Ecuadorian town called Esmeraldas. From a very young age I have felt artistic inclinations and within my possibilities, at an early age I got involved in what I could. I initially experimented with music, dance, writing, and modeling. La ruta del sol is a feature film that I made in a time of discovery of my own being and what was going to mark my life from then on. I began to question things that were wandering in my mind but were still not clear. In this film I threw what I felt into the void, with many gaps, but it remains there, in time and memory.
