At Reflections we are keen to support filmmakers intent on telling fresh and interesting stories, with strong cinematic sensibilities.

One such director, currently working on his third feature is Jonathan Cenzual Burley, who previously made the acclaimed El Alma de las Moscas (The Soul of Flies) and El Año y la Viña (The Year and the Vineyard). Burley shot these two features without a real budget, yet they were still selected to screen in some of the great international festivals including Karlovy Vary, BFI London, Sao Paulo, Mill Valley, D’A in Barcelona and Warsaw among others.

We urge you to check out his current crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo for his next film El Pastor, about a middle aged shepherd who lives a poor but happy life in a small, run down house in the middle of the Spanish plains. He attempts to ignore the offers he receives from a construction company that wants to buy his house and land, to build a new residential complex, but comes into conflict with owners of the neighboring lands with violent consequences.

The film stars Miguel Martin (Cell 211 and Artico) who will be playing Anselmo the Shepherd, with principal supporting roles from established TV actor Alfonso Mendiguchia, theatre actress and director Maribel Iglesias and theatre and film actress Mayte Iglesias.

There are a great set of perks for those who contribute to the campaign, including the DVD, soundtrack and t-shirt for €50.

Alejandro Jodorowsky, one of world cinema’s most extraordinary directors, has released a pledge to fund his autobiographical feature film The Dance of Reality.

The eighty-two year old, who made such extraordinary films as El Topo and The Holy Mountain back in the 1970s, is looking to produce a film without financial ties to the film industry. He wishes to fund the film and presumably distribute it himself.
