I co-directed, co-wrote, filmed and edited this 30' documentary, in a team with other filmmakers working with OTOXO Productions, in Barcelona. The documentary has been realized in 2016 and is now starting his journey through festivals.
Victims of relentless racism, persecuted by the police, and silent for many years, they have finally found a voice and created a union: El Sindicato Popular de los Vendedores Ambulantes de Barcelona, the first of its kind in Europe.
In this series composed of 4 short documentaries, I was co-directos, co-writer, camera operator and editor, in a team of filmmakers working with OTOXO Productions, based in Barcelona. The documentaries were completed in 2015 and are currently participating in many international film festivals.
In life, as in tango, it's possible to break the barriers of the roles imposed by society. Carmen, a Mexican tango teacher who emigrated to Barcelona, explains her experience of life and dance and how she began teaching tango using "the changing role" approach, which allows her students to express their identity in full freedom and fluidity, rather than being refined to their traditional gender role within the dance.
A band of street musicians - two Russians and a Catalan - explain how a street musician's life is in Barcelona when one of the instruments is an upright piano, and has to be taken everywhere with them. They also tell the story of how they met, how their lives were in Russia before arriving in Spain, and how they created a New Orleans-style band in Catalonia.
Roller derby looks like a powerful, aggressive sport for strong women; but is this true? Drea, a Canadian woman who through this sport has found a reason to smile and a place to feel fully accepted and free to express herself, talks about the unity and shared respect between its participants. Roller derby proves to be a sport that all women can do and where each identity is respected.
MUSIC PROMO VIDEO
I co-directed, filmed and edited, in team with my collegue James Royale, this video promo, at the library Siglo de Sant Cugat del Vallès (Barcelona) in 2016.
Núria Balcells (5 string violin) and Anatol Eremciuc (accordion), fuse sounds from Moldova and Catalonia, playing Astor Piazzolla's tangos, music from the world and their own compositions.
The violin 5 strings, called Quinton, built by luthier Barrey Dudley, combines violin and viola, giving a warm and expansive sound.
Both the artists and the repertoire, offer an intimate concert, versatile, full of joy and tenderness.
The "Space of the Humiliacion" is a personal project composed by 6 blocs of interviews recorded on the streets of Barcelona, about humiliacion as a subtle form of violence, experienced by everyone every day.
60 DB is the level of sound that corresponds to the noise of the city. 16 KHZ corresponds to a high-pitched, inaudible frequency. The Catalan subtitle of the exhibition – Sents la violència? – plays with the different meanings of the verb “sentir”: “to hear” and, also, “to feel” or “perceive”. The fact that you can’t hear them doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

In 1888, the Italian administration launched its first development projects in the new colony. The Eritrea Railway reached Asmara in the highlands in 1911. The Italian Eritrea administration opened a number of new factories, which produced buttons, food, construction materials, tobacco, leather and other household commodities.
Many Italian architects were sent to Eritrea and transformed it into a playground of futurist architecture, and Asmara is now home to one of the world's best collections of futurist architecture - as well as Modernist and Rationalism masterpieces - and the city is seeking to become a UNESCO World Heritage site.
