JOSE LUIS GARCÍA SÁNCHEZ
Born in Salamanca, 1941, he graduated in Law and studied Sociology and Filmmaking at the Escuela Oficial de Cinematografía. He founded the theater group “Los Goliardos” and participated as an assistant director in “Nueve cartas para Berta” by Basilio Martín Patino and “La caza” by Carlos Saura. As a member of the production project “In-Scramél” he shot new short films, which, being awarded, would lead him to work as a screenwriter. The focus of his career has been that of Director: since his beginnings, impacted by ideological radicalism, his titles are of cinematic and sociological interest, as he delves into the new “españolito” that was born: “El love feroz” or “Colorín, colorado “. In 1978 he premiered “Las truchas” a social allegory from a sharp and demolishing viewpoint which won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival. Later hefilmed a title which is essential to understand documentaries in our country: “Dolores”. He also experimented with musicals with the hit “La corte del Faraón”. His work tries to portray Spain “under the reflection of convex mirrors”, and it turns out that Valle-Inclan was very close to his understanding of the Spanish reality.
