About

I am a documentary enthusiast: I watch, make, research, teach, and write about documentary films.

I grew up in a small village called Bunyol, in Spain, and spent most of my childhood in an old cinema run by my family. There I developed a fascination for filmmaking. I studied Journalism at the University of Valencia (2008). Since I finished my Masters in Innovation and Quality in Television (University Pompeu Fabra, 2009), I have been working as documentary researcher, cinematographer, and editor for several productions, such as ‘Dr. Moises Broggi’ (TV3, Spain, 2010), ‘I wasn’t always dressed like this’ (D-AEP, UK, 2013), and ‘Changing of the Guard’ (Telesur, UK, 2018). In 2014, I won a scholarship by Ibermedia to complete a Diploma in Creative Documentary at the University of Valle, in Colombia. I teach documentary filmmaking workshops at the University of Essex, in England, and make independent documentaries and other videos. My work has been awarded by UNESCO and Talencia, and has been shown at cinemas, film festivals, and art galleries. Currently, I am doing a practice-based PhD on Latin American women pioneers in political documentary cinema at UCL.
