Jaime Rosales


Jaime Rosales graduated in Business Studies before gaining a grant to study film abroad. The author of various short films, he worked as a television scriptwriter until 2001, the year he set up Fresdeval Films production company. In 2003, he filmed Las horas del día (The Hours of the Day), his first full-length film and the one to have received most awards, including the FIPRESCI Prize during the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs del Festival de Cannes. In 2007, La soledad (Solitary Fragments) was awarded three Goya Prizes (Best Film, Director and Revelation Actor) and was re-released. In 2008, his work underwent a radical turnaround and in a fortnight, with a small team and amateur actors, he filmed Tiro en la cabeza (Bullet in the Head, 2008), which was presented at the San Sebastian International Film Festival where it controversially received the FRIPESCI Prize. This was the first Spanish film to be released simultaneously in cinemas, on the Internet and at a museum (MNCARS).
