Director: Román Reyes
Synopsis: When I was a child, people called me ‘Tomboy’. It all started when my mum cut my hair.
Bio: Actor, visual creator. I have a weakness and obsession for the light, the eyes and the reflexions…All everything that comes along with it. Specially lightening. When I was a child I used to paint, so I used to fill up my classroom with my paintings – some of them with made with sand-, I used to hit my bicycle for learning on a stubbornness day. There was no other way: It was given to me, I won it on a sand castle contest. Sand, little pieces of minerals, also-much bigger, obviously- I was a collector. I do hate some people who call them rocks. Later on, I stepped away from painting for entering on the digital world and do graphic design, I still keep on doing it combine to my other two confronted passions: acting and filmmaking. Films, I tried my best on each one I create. Catching the light after all. Either way, Stories to tell…to find the light in me. And for my own story. Since 2011 I created “Hypnos Films” with a group of passionate geek of the light like me. So far I produced and directed 21 short films. If I have to remark some of them I would say “Pequeños” because we condense one life in two minutes, and “Luciérnagas” I did it all when I was hospitalized due to my losing hearing. I was in a very bright hospital room, my smartphone and a lot of time to kill/a lot of free time. Is anything better than art for healing?
