Rodrigo Reyes, Director

Mexican director Rodrigo Reyes (Mexico City, 1983), makes films deeply grounded in his identity as an immigrant artist, crafting a poetic gaze from the margins, using striking imagery to portray the contradictory nature of our shared world, while revealing the potential for transformative change. He has received the support of The Mexican Film Institute (IMCINE), Sundance and Tribeca Institutes, while his films have screened on PBS and Netflix. His film "499," won Best Cinematography at Tribeca and the Special Jury Award at Hot Docs. Rodrigo is a recipient of the prestigious Guggenheim and Creative Capital Awards, as well as the Rainin Fellowship, the SF Indie Vanguard Award and the Eureka Fellowship. His latest film,'"Sansón and Me," won the Best Film Award at Sheffield DocFest, and was the opening film for the 2023 season premiere of the celebrated documentary series Independent Lens, on PBS.
