Gerardo Olivares

Gerardo Olivares was born in Córdoba, in 1964. After graduating in journalism, he worked in Madrid for the Los Aventureros magazine. Being passionate about travels and since the beginning of the nineties, Olivares found in documentary production a creative outlet for his unbounded interest: La ruta de las Córdobas (1992), La ruta de Samarkanda (1997) or Herederos de Gengis Kan (2000) are a few examples. In 2005 Olivares decided to take the plunge into fiction, and he took it with La gran final, shot in the Sahara, in Mongolia and the Brazilian Amazon. One year later, in 2006, he filmed14 kilómetros, which deals with African immigration, obtaining several prizes all over the world (including the Espiga de Oro at Valladolid, awarded for the first time to a Spaniard). In 2010 he released Entrelobos, a fiction film based on the life of Marcos Rodríguez Pantoja, to whom he dedicates his new documentary Marcos, el lobo solitario.
