(Tacna, Peru, 1949) A director, producer and scriptwriter, his links with cinema go back to 1965, while he was still a student, when he published the magazine "Cine Estudio" and began to collaborate on the specialised magazine "Hablemos de Cine" where his articles revitalised Peruvian film criticism. In 1967 he went to Argentina where he stayed for a year and a half and studied at the University Film Institute in Santa Fe. Back in Peru he studied film directing at Lima University but continued to work as a critic. In 1974 he became a minority shareholder in Producciones Inca Films S.A, a company he went on to take control of in 1984 with which he has produced or co-produced most of his films, as well as producing films by other directors. In 1977 he wrote and directed his first full-length film Muerte al amanecer. Since then he has directed eleven films with which he has taken part in the main international festivals and which have won several important prizes, including the Silver Shell for Best Director at the Donostia-San Sebastián International Film Festival for La ciudad y los perros, in 1985, the Grand Prix of the Americas at the World Film Festival in Montreal in 1990, and the Silver Shell for Best Director at the Donostia-San Sebastián International Film Festival in 1996 for Bajo la piel. Three of his films Maruja en el infierno, La ciudad y los perros and Caídos del cielo have been pre-selected to be nominated for the Oscar for Best Foreign Film. At the present time he is working on the postproduction of Ojos que no ven his thirtieth full-length film.
