"Al Otro Lado" director Gustavo Loza poses for the Mindanao Examiner during a week-long workshop on film making attended by more than 40 directors, film makers and cinematographers in Manila. The workshop is sponsored by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), in cooperation with the Embassy of Mexico and Mowelfund Film Institute (MFI) with support from the President’s Social Fund (PSF).
The film workshop tackled all the processes in creating a movie – from the origin of an idea, its transformation into a film script, its projection on the big screen and other processes involved when directing a film.
Considered as one of the exciting new directors in Mexico, Loza has several films to his credit. Loza’s latest film, “Al otro lado” (To The Other Side), is about the interspersed lives of three children – a Mexican, Moroccan and Cuban – whose fathers have left them to venture in other lands.
