The filmmaker who attended with his wife, actress Leticia Dole, was delighted to visit Valladolid. During the gathering he reflected on his career to which he attributes his love of monsters to the influence that the television show by Chicho Ibañez Serrador hadon his childhood. His cinematic approach is marked by the success of "REC" which includes three films.
We join him in his passionate defense of national cinematography, about which he stated, "It is just as good as (cinematography) in any other part of the world, we must recover our pride in our own (cinematography)."
