Raul is a passionate Andalusian storyteller.
He started his career in Advertising in Madrid as a creative director and creating his own company. He lived in London, Paris and Berlin before he jumped into film in 2009 enrolling in the MFA Social Documentary program at the School of Visual Arts in New York. He graduated in 2011 and received the Paula Rhodes Award “for deeming his work exceptional”. He has produced, written, edited and directed five shorts, awarded in international film festivals.
Raul's documentaries try not to have a journalistic approach, and focus on real-life stories that seek to engage the audience. He claims not to want to save the world with his films, just make his Grandma laugh and have fun.
“LA ROCA” (THE ROCK) is his first feature-length film. It was awarded the Golden Giraldillo for BEST EUROPEAN DOCUMENTARY at the Seville European Film Festival 2011. "LA ROCA" is an epic Romeo & Juliet-type love story between the massive Rock of Gibraltar and its neighboring Spanish city of La Linea. As any classic love story, it had to end in tragedy.
