  • 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 “Sombras de un sueño (Shadows of a dream)” and was followed by “The feet of sin” a horror story.

    “El Camino (The Way)” 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 one’s mind and memoirs in order to know who oneself actually is. It is told with plenty of metaphors and symbolism.
