Amateur can be understood as a gesture of love and justice towards the people and places that represent the meaning of “home” for the author. From three stories; an elderly couple, the memory of a suicide bomber who spent his last days spending and giving away what he had, and a huge shoot of J. Audiard’s latest film, Amateur proposes an intimate portrait of a mountain town.
Martin lived in a small mountain town until he decided to go to study cinema in Barcelona when he was18. He continued his studies in film script in San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba, and won an award for an official Master in Digital Art. With his friends from university, he founded a rock group that allowed him to tour different countries in Europe and the United States. After that adventure, he has been combining film editing with the direction of experimental pieces and teaching within the Cinema en Curs project. Amateur is his first documentary film project as a director.
