Carlos Atanes


Carlos Atanes

Carlos Atanes (born November 8, 1971) is an Spanish film director and writer.

Born in Barcelona, Spain, Atanes has written and directed many works since 1987, using different genres and techniques (Hi-8 video, 35mm., etc). In 1991, he shoots "The Marvellous World of the Cucu Bird", which has been followed by another experimental works as "El Tenor Mental" (1993) and "Borneo" (1997). Some fiction productions like "La Metamorfosis de Franz Kafka" (1993), "Morfing" (1995), "Metaminds & Metabodies" (1995-1999) or "Welcome to Spain" (1999) show us a particular vision about cinema and, also, about reality (with a style that provokes adhesions but aversions too). He is a controversial filmmaker and a cultural activist, who has always vindicates the independent production, digital cinematography and science fiction genre (a kind of cinema very unusual in Spain).In 2003 he started a work about the famous British magician Aleister Crowley, and the outcome was "Perdurabo", a medium-length (40 min.) film, which will be the first part of a feature-length movie when Atanes will retake the project.

His first finished feature-length movie is "" (2004), a low-budget film about a cold European dystopia which shows his eye for unusual imagery. It won the Best Feature Film Award at the Athens Panorama of Independent Filmmakers (Greece, 2005), and was also nominated to the Méliès d'Argent at Fantasporto (2005).

With "PROXIMA" (2007) he has grown to currently become the Spanish science fiction filmmaker par excellence.

In 2008 he collects his three most wild, bizarre and underground shortfilms into the "CODEX ATANICUS", an anthology which is on its way to becoming a cult film, judging by enthusiastic reviews written by American indy movie critics.
