Director Biography - Guillermo Pita

Born in Spain in 1997, Pita developed an early passion for music, starting to play the piano at a young age and soon his own compositions. He discovered cinema later, when he got hold of an old camera his parents stopped using. Since then he has combined both disciplines in the academic and professional field. Guillermo Pita currently studies two bachelor degrees: film and media communication in University Carlos III de Madrid and Music Composition in the Royal Conservatory of Madrid. He has scored the music of thirteen short films, two corporative spots and one documentary. As a director, Mary's Room is his first experimental short film; his first and previous short film, "7:13" was awarded in five different student film festivals.

Director Statement

Mary's Room was not conceived to deliver a single and unanimous perspective. Its meanings have been deconstructed into sensorial atmospheres and poetic symbols that aim to appeal each of us in a unique and different way.
