Felipe Matilla Alonso
4th edittion of Cologne Online Film Festival 2008
Felipe Matilla was born in Zamora, Spain, in 1960. When he was 14 y.o. was given his first Super-8 camera with which he began to practice the language of cinema.
He studied law at the UNED and English at the EOI.
After Super-8 was more o less obsolete he began to film shorts in analogue and then in digital video. His first short in video was â€œSombras de un sueÃ±o (Shadows of a dream)â€ and was followed by â€œThe feet of sinâ€ a horror story.
â€œEl Camino (The Way)â€ was finished in 2008 and is his third short film in digital video. It is a short that tries to convey the idea of diving into oneâ€™s mind and memoirs in order to know who oneself actually is. It is told with plenty of metaphors and symbolism.
