Santiago A. Zannou (Spain)

Santiago Ahuanojinou Zannou was born in Madrid in 1977 the youngest of three children.

When Santiago was young he moved to Mallorca where we worked as a waiter, clerk and even played football for a third division team.

Santiago’s passion for cinema began when his older brother, a record producer worked on the soundtrack of a short film.

Santiago then went to Barcelona and studied at the Centre d’Estudis Cinematogràfics de Catalunya (CECC).

Santiago’s films have always been linked to social and immigration issues. Santiago uses cinema in an attempt to break the walls of our collective and individual consciousness telling stories and shaping stories from real life.

He has won several awards for his work as a director, among them 3 Goyas in 2009 for his film El Truco del Manco.
