producer / director / choreographer - ayelén liberona
Born in Toronto to Chilean political refugees, Ayelen began with a career in dance. Infused with a kinetic imagination, she trained dance in Cuba, received an anthropology degree at the University of Toronto and then moved to New York City. Her work as a performer and choreographer has been shown to wide acclaim at festivals, theaters and on television across 4 continents.  Ayelen’s obsession with the moving image lead her to film, and in 2005 she directed Falling, which premiered at 13 international film festivals.  In 2008, along with Joseph Johnson Camí, she produced the feature documentary A Grain of Sand (2008), which premiered in May 2009 at the Reel Earth Environmental Film Festival. The short film Becoming (2009), made with a grant from the Bravo Arts Channel Canada, marks the first of many creative collaborations between Ayelen and Joseph.http://www.ayelenliberona.comshapeimage_7_link_0
producer / director - joseph johnson camí
That inexplicable desire for expression and thirst for ideas was the culprit of it all. It led me to books and dark nights with movies as my companion. I was born in 1979 in the United States, but I followed my mother’s roots to Barcelona, Spain, where I explored my abilities as a writer.  In the process of getting my degree in English literature at the University of North Carolina, a chance encounter in a gym would set me on the filmmaking path. Since then, I’ve directed and produced a feature length documentary A grain of sand (2008), and the short film Becoming (2009). I also directed the TV-movie Adrenalina (2007), which was nominated to 9 Spanish television awards, of which it won four. I am currently a professor at the private film school El Plato de Cinema in Barcelona, Spain, where I teach film direction while preparing my next project with my creative conspirator and partner, Ayelen Liberona.
