José Luis Guerín
José Luis Guerín was born in 1960 in Barcelona, Spain. His films, Los motivos de Berta, Innisfree and Tren de sombras comprise an oeuvre that is absolutely unique in Spanish cinema, working always around the blurry limits between documentary and fiction. En construcción was awarded the Special Jury Prize at last year's San Sebastián Film Festival, an infrequent accolade for a documentary.
Patricio Guzmán later added a third section to the film: The power of the people (1978), dedicated to cameraman Jorge Muller, a member of the original team, who was detained and disappeared by the military. 23 years after the coup, Guzmán returned to Chile to show La batalla de Chile for the first time in his own country and to create a documentary about this experience, La memoria obstinada (1997). His other films include En nombre de Dios (1987), La cruz del sur (1992), and El caso Pinochet (2001).
