Jayro Bustamante (Guatemala, 1977) studied Film Directing at the Conservatoire Libre du Cinéma Français in Paris and continued his studies as a screenwriter at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome. In 2015 he returned to Guatemala and founded La Casa de Producción. With the company, he produced his short films and debut movie, Ixcanul (2015), winner of the Alfred Bauer Award at Berlin Festival following its screening in Films in Progress at San Sebastian, to which he returned to compete with the film in Horizontes Latinos. Temblores (2019) premiered in the Panorama section of the Berlinale, won the Audience Award and Rail d’Oc in Toulouse, competed in Horizontes Latinos and landed the Sebastiane Latino Award at San Sebastian Festival. Towards the end of 2018, his next project, La Llorona won the EFADs CAACI Award at the Europe-Latin America CoProduction Forum in San Sebastian. The film was shown the following year in Le Giornati degli Autori at Venice Festival, where it won the Best Director award, and closed Horizontes Latinos out of competition.
