(Pazos Hermos, Orense, 1973) He wanted to be a painter, writer and musician; today, he does it all simultaneously by devoting himself to cinema. He was the director for Robert de Niro and Sigourney Weaver in ‘Red Lights’, Ryan Reynolds in ‘Buried’ and Uma Thurman in ‘Blackwood’. As a writer, Editorial Delirio published his two collections of “antiaforismos, breverías y bombas de mano”, ‘A las 3 son las 2’ and ‘Dormir es de patos’, and the novel ‘Sí importa el modo en que un hombre se hunde’. In 2021, Literatura Random House published his second novel, ‘Los años extraordinarios‘, and is now publishing his fifth book, ‘Verbolario‘, a satirical dictionary that has its origins in a section of the same name that Rodrigo Cortés has published since 2015 in the newspaper ABC, in which pages he also writes regularly. He discusses film, literature and music in two of the most popular podcasts of the moment: ‘Todopododerosos’ and ‘Aquí hay dragones’, alongside ArturoGonzález-Campos, Javier Cansado and Juan Gómez-Jurado.
