His knowledge of music and his mastery of sound production have led him to link music with film in an important way. His cinema has been shown at the most important festivals in Mexico and the world, including San Sebastian, Mar del Plata, Shanghai, Morelia, Quebec, etc. His new film, “This is not Berlin”, premieres in January at the International Sundance Festival.
