Alejandro Landes

Alejandro Landes (So Paulo, 1980) was born to a Columbian mother and Ecuadorian father. He studied literature, economy and architecture at Brown University in Providence, USA, and subsequently wrote for the Miami Herald, a newspaper with primary focus on Latin America, and for the Miami-based Spanish-language talk show Oppenheimer presenta. His first film premiered in 2007, the documentary Cocalero about Columbian coca farmers, which he not only directed but also wrote and produced. He did the same for Porfirio, his first feature film, made with the support of Cinfondation (a foundation of the Cannes Film Festival) and the Sundance Institute (associated with the Sundance Film Festival).
