Regarding the director or directors:
Samir Oliveros was born in Bogotá in June 1990, where he grew up and completed his high school education. From a young age, he knew that visual arts were his passion. “I always wanted to act and did so in school plays. I attended a summer camp at the New York Film Academy where I realized I enjoyed directing more. I decided to study film, and New York was my favorite city. I applied to several universities there, and the School of Visual Arts offered me a scholarship, so I went.”
After graduating from college, he launched a campaign on Kickstarter, an online platform for financing independent projects, to shoot his first feature film on Providencia Island. “The Day of the Goat was the idea I had for my thesis, but I couldn’t miss classes for so long and didn’t have the funds. So, once graduated, I returned to Bogotá with the script, and we launched the Kickstarter,” says Oliveros.
His next project will be more futuristic. “One of the scripts I have is set in the most technologically advanced place in the world. I hope to be able to shoot it in Japan.”
