Each stone that constitutes the stone wall is indispensable. Master Santiago knows it well. He chooses them carefully with strength and intelligence, and then molds them by smoothing out their edges. This is how he transcribes the representation of a revealed idea.

RAFAEL MONTEZUMA (Gran Canaria, Spain, 1971) In 2018, Rafael directed his first short film Dua2litet, for which he obtained the Dimensions Award in the Short Short Story Film Festival in Providence, the United States. That same year, Rafael was awarded with the first prize for his work Hiram in the Short film contest Athanatos Inmortal organized by the Canarian Institute of Bioanthropology and the Archeological Museum of Tenerife within the Extraordinary World Congress of Mummy Studies. In 2019, he filmed the experimental documentary Pillimpo about the selftaught sculptor with the same name and whose work is a blend of Kitsch and Outsider art / Art Brut. As a director of photography shooting 8mm films, Rafael Montezuma was in charge of filming the short film Cockfight by the visual artist Humberto Vélez in 2016.
