"Artist and filmmaker. He is one of the most interesting figures in Spanish film."

He was born in Valladolid in 1934, and is a multidisciplinary artist: writer, journalist, caricaturist, painter, journalist film director, and maker of television programmes and documentaries. He is a contributor to daily newspapers and magazines such as 'El Norte de Castilla' and 'La Codorniz'. In 1961 he obtained his diploma in the Institute of Cinematographic Research and Experiments with 'Sor Angelina Virgen'. Together with Gonzalo Suárez, Mario Camus and Carlos Saura, he belongs to the generation of filmmakers born in the early 1930s who are known by the name of 'new Spanish cinema'. His films tend to be very intimate and personal works which are not intended for a wider public. He worked together with Ángel Fernández Santos on the screenplays for some of his films.
