This movie is about a guy who gets fiercely driven by his black horse until he loses absolutely everything, nothing bad can happen beyond this point in his life, hence an opportunity arises for a shift on his journey.

icon-trivia   About the Film:

El Auriga is directed by Diego who is born and brought up in Madrid. He did his schooling and went to university from there. He has studied Mass Media and Film Making. He completed his degree and masters by the age of 22 years old. His father was a commercial pilot. Initially his parents were skeptical of his choice of profession and they wanted him to do something which will secure his future, but eventually they understood where his talent and interest lies and are very supportive of him. His parents contact film makers many times to support him in every way they can. He has worked as a Production Assistant on TV, worked in theatre, for commercial productions etc. But one job which has maximum impact in his career is assisting Edward Lachman (who has been nominated for Oscar twice for best cinematography) as his personal assistant. He was working on a project for a museum on famous American painter – Edward Hopper where they had to build a 3D set up which seen from an angle looks like one of his paintings. He says his learning working with this extraordinary artist has been the brightest feather on his cap.

“I got the idea to make this film from a story I read during school time where every human soul is in the center of a white horse and a black horse. Human soul being a carrier can be pushed and pulled by horses. White horse is a beautiful horse made up of virtue, all the good things and on the other hand black horse is made up on bad feelings. If you let black horse win then it can lead your chariot to hell. I always thought it was a pretty good story and years after school it kept coming back to me. This movie is about a guy who loses everything in life and reaches a point that nothing bad can happen beyond this point in his life. He gets driven by a black horse and from there his journey where he gets pulled away from white horse.”

“The biggest challenge for us was money. I decided to raise money by calling all my friends over for dinner and some drinks, beers. I invited about 30 people and charged them around $30. This helped me raise $1000. Then a friend gave me some money and rest was from my pocket. I am glad to have spent this money on this film and I hope to invest more in a feature film in future. This film was shot on the streets of Lima and the traffic there is absolutely crazy. Actor had to drive without a helmet in traffic. Another challenge we faced was that we did not have all the permits to shoot this film in the streets therefore we had to be as quick as possible and be ready for if the police made their appearance. Interestingly the guy who plays the lead character is a model by profession and doesn’t have much experience with acting. I spent a lot of time speaking to him about the character. I think he has some natural talent n I think he did it pretty well. He wasn’t afraid of anything. He was the first one to go around cars while taking risks, he wasn’t afraid of anything.”
