A life in frames per second, Enrique Cerezo and cinema
Cinema was more than a hobby, it always aroused in him a passion. Proof of this was his early interest in the "seventh art".
The hours passed in that mid-century Segovia, languished, but the images were the decoration that decorated Enrique’s school walls. He was responsible for projecting movies every Sunday. From below, he began to know the intricacies of cinema.
In direct contact with the professionals
Inseparable, the interest and the dreams began materializing, his first film appeared. Many are unaware of this first incursion and the many that were to come, but Enrique began working as a camera assistant for “A million in the trash”, with José María Forqué, the great Spanish director and scriptwriter.
There was some other film flirtation with the emblematic Francisco Martínez Soria, with Alfredo Landa ... who doesn’t remember some of the mythical comedies like "¿Qué hacemos con los hijos?" or “Vente a Alemania, Pepe”? There too he drew on his technical skills, until 1974 when he embarked on the adventure of directing his own short film “La sonrisa del sol: Almería".
His imprint on the Spanish panorama
The 80s were coming to an end and his interest began shifting towards cinema production. He participates as an investor in some films and definitely in the early 90s, would create his own production company, Enrique Cerezo P.C.
Since then, he has been part of the development and production of many films, together with great directors like Imanol Uribe, Ricardo Franco, Emilio Martinez Lazaro, Alex de la Iglesia, Mario Camus, Dario Argento, Pilar Miró, José Luis Cuerda ...
