Albert Arizza

Born in Madrid in 1978. He studied direction, history of film, and animation in Paris, where he shot his first short films and video art.

As a 22-year-old, he won awards for his short Only for a Tango (2000) in France, the USA, and at Locarno. Then came Pandora (2001), Room 18 (2003), and The Ecoroad (2004), as well as the TV documentary series Secrets & Leyends (2004).

He also became handy with a camera: the seven-minute film Energy Hunter (2005) made its way to festivals around the world, winning various awards including Best Sci-Fi at the International Festival of Cinema & Technology (USA). The video art piece Jellyfish Invasion (2006) has achieved more than 1 million hits on YouTube.

He and Monika Goyanes founded Cinema Resistance productions, under whose auspices he shot his feature debut Ramirez.
