I WAS ANDERSSEN
SPAIN 14 MIN, 2019
My father taught me to play chess, shortly before leaving home forever. I was a child. Forty years have passed, he has just died, and I have decided to complete the ritual that began on the day that I managed to beat him.
Documentary filmmaker, journalist and writer. One of his most noteworthy projects is the investigation that he carried out over a period of almost ten years into the case of one of last two people to be executed by ’garrote vil’ during Franco’s dictatorship. The result was the non-fiction book ’Georg’s Silence’.
He also investigated Robert Capa’s famous photograph ’Falling Soldier’ and narrated this research in the documentary feature ’The Shadow of the Iceberg’, awarded at Docusur Festival, among others.
During recent years he has lived in Lima (Peru), where he has given workshops about documentary and investigative journalism.
Since 2017 has focused in directing documentaries.
This is a project born from the need to transform grief into a healing ritual.
This is a humble story of love, mourning, forgiveness and memory.
This is the story of a father and a son.
This is my story.
