José Luis Guerin
?Born in 1960 in Barcelona, José Luis Guerín grew up during Franco's regime and became one of Europe's most influential non-fiction filmmakers, occupying a unique place in Catalan cinema. Together with his colleague, the radical documentarian Joaquim Jordà, Guerín transformed the Documentary Program at Pomeu Fabra into an important centre for experimental non-fiction work and inspired a new generation of young filmmakers. Guerín's films include Los Motivos de Berta (1985), Innisfree (1990), and Tren de Sombras (1997).
