Alvaro de la Hoz is a Spanish filmmaker. After getting a Graduate Degree in History, he attended Madrid Film School (ECAM) where studied Film Editing. In 2006 he and other fellow filmmakers founded Burbuja Films, an independent production company in his hometown, Santander. The young business quickly became a reference for local filmmakers and allowed Alvaro to direct short films, documentaries and music videos which were screened and won prizes at film festivals all around the world. In spite of its thematic and formal variety, there are certain constants to Alvaro de la Hoz’s work: its polished look, its introvert but strong main characters and a peculiar vision of our everyday reality that often flirts with the fantastic. His latest films such as the experimental piece ‘Fuego’ (2015) or the short films ‘Frightening Woods’ (2017) and ‘Replica’ (2020), explore the possibilities of telling stories in film without using any dialogue. Do It For Me’ is his first feature film, a feel good story, kind of a modern fairy tale, that takes place in a lush scenery he knows very well: the green mountains that surround his hometown in Northern Spain.
