He has received grants from Sundance Institute, Tribeca Film Institute and Rockefeller Media Artists. His films have been shown and awarded at Sundance, Visions du Reél, IDFA, La Mostra de Sao Paulo, Mar del Plata, BAFICI, FICUNAM, ARTE (TV).

“This screening comes from the desire for a film to become a vehicle of intimacy. The nature of filmmaking is that of replication, like an ink seal. There is little intimacy in the act of screening a film. The creation of a feature film made exclusively for a group of individuals opens a window into true intimacy, a singular encounter that shies away from the unilateral voice in which the spectator becomes the co-creator of this film.”
