NACHO RUIZ CAPILLAS - EDITOR
It’s probably fair to describe Nacho as Spain’s leading film editor. With more than 70 movies under his belt over the last 20 years he has worked with the majority of Spain’s most important and original cinema talents. At the international level, he’s probably most noted for cutting Alejandro Amenábar’s “The Others” as well as his epic “Agora”. He has a long working relationship with Fernando de León, including the classic “Mondays in the Sun” which firmly established Javier Bardem’s status as a world-class actor. He is also the go-to editor for directors such as Gracia Querejeta (“Hector”), Daniel Sanchez Arevalo (“Family United”) and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (“Intacto”).
He heard about “Tea & Sangria” through a friend, asked to view the first cut that Peter Domankiewicz was working on, and immediately offered to get the film into shape, despite the lack of budget – working on it in the afternoons whilst cutting Spain’s candidate for the Oscars in the morning. He did, however, struggle with the jokes in it about Atlético Madrid, his team.
