Gala del Sol

WRITER/DIRECTOR - ENGLISH BIO

Gala del Sol is a Colombian film director and writer known for her unorthodox visions, as she strives to make each of her pieces eye-opening, outrageous and unconventional. Focusing on aesthetic innovation and characterized by wit and technical rigor, her work is inspired by everything that doesn’t seem to match its environment, all that is off-putting and intriguing. She’s also constantly stealing from the decades of the ‘50s, ‘80s and ‘90s, and her narratives revolve around games of temporality, magical realism, surrealism and minimalism.
She graduated Cum Laude with a BFA Film Production with emphasis on directing from Chapman University's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts, in California. Her senior thesis Transient Passengers was a finalist at the Student Academy Awards. Her short films and music videos have participated and been awarded in more than 60 festivals worldwide.

She's a bhakti yogi who likes gypsy music, salsa dancing, ancient mysticism, yellow orchids, long run-on sentences, people with a joyful spirit and days with lots of sun!

Es una cineasta colombiana conocida por sus visiones no ortodoxas y piezas poco convencionales. Centrándose en la innovación estética y caracterizada por su ingenio y rigor técnico, sus narrativas giran alrededor de los juegos de temporalidad, del realismo mágico, el surrealismo y el minimalismo. Está constantemente tomando inspiración de las décadas de los años 50, 80 y 90, y bromea denominando su estilo "retro-futurista, gótico-tropical."
