Director

LANDER CAMARERO

Bilbao, 1981. Graduate in Audiovisual Communication, he mainly works as a screen­writer, assistant director and editor. He founded his production company Offtopik with the syndicalist, Iñigo G. Quesada. They still argue today over who founded it first. This discussion led to creation of the more personal fiction branch, named Pressure Filmak. The analytical documentary What About Columbus was his first work under the label, followed by the short films A Political Story and A Serious Comedy, two completely different takes on activism.
