The director

Oriol Canals

Oriol Canals was born in Barcelona (Spain), where he grew up, lived and worked until 1994. That year, he embarked on a journey that took him to London, Dublin, Belfast and Paris. In 1997, he returned to Barcelona. Having left a part of himself in Paris, however, he spent several years between the two cities. In France, his long-standing passion for cinema led him to eventually make the jump and start documentary film-making. In 2001 he settled permanently in Paris.

"Sombras" is his first feature-length film.
