Meet the Filmmaker: Guillermo Roqués, “El Javi – Recuerdo a Paco”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?
GR: I have always been attracted to visual storytelling. I graduated in journalism and worked in several newspapers. After the 2008 crisis, I switched to video production and stayed there since then…

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?
GR: Recuerdo a Paco is a music video of “El Javi”, a rock-flamenco band based in Denver.

It was produced in the first months of 2018.

Q: What else are you working on?
GR: I´m about to finish my first long feature documentary, called The Right to Rest, codirected with Sarah Megyesy. It explores the housing and homelessness crisis in Denver, along with the Tiny Home Village built as an emergency solution in RiNO.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?
GR: I guess I´m as weird as any other human being.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
GR: You can find more about my next documentary at https://www.facebook.com/TheR2RFilm/

You can find more about El JAVI at https://eljavi.com

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?
GR: I think it´s a great initiative and a good way to share work with other fellow filmmakers. Sharing is Caring!

El Javi – Recuerdo a Paco will screen at The Emerging Filmmakers Project on Thursday, December 17th at The Bug Theatre.
