João Rui Guerra da Mata

Script writer, artistic director, filmmaker, film editor and even director of photography, the career of João Rui Guerra da Mata is linked to João Pedro Rodrigues’ one, with whom he has cooperated since O fantasma (2000). Working for Rodrigues, Rui Guerra has been above all artistic director and co-script writer in works as relevant as Morir como un hombre y Manhã de Santo Antonio, but before La última vez que vi Macao he had already co-directed China, China (2007) and Alvorada Vermelha with him. He has shot the short film O que arde cura in 2012, on his own and under the sign of Cocteau. (Source: Sevilla Festival de Cine Europeo)
