About Us

Rinoceronte Films SL was founded in 2008 by the brother-and-sister team of Nayra and Javier Sanz Fuentes, cognizant of the tremendous change cinema is undergoing. Celluloid filmmaking is being replaced by the potentialities promised by digital recording. Conventional distribution in film theatres is making room for new processes of digital distribution, as well as for independent and private modes of projection (such as home cinema) where expensive technical systems are no longer required for viewing.

Against this democratizing backdrop, Nayra and Javier envisioned a production company that would always keep in focus the qualitative value of cinema in a changing technological world; where the speed enabled by the digital environment would highlight rather than gloss over reflective and critical intensity.

Our in-house productions strive to address concerns of psychological, affective or socio-cultural importance, and explore the existential and anthropological questions of contemporary man. In turn, in our collaborations with other organizations, whether private businesses or cultural centers, we endeavor to ensuresa depth and rigor in the issues being dealt with.

This concern with the fascinating and complex in this world underscores the name of production company, Rinoceronte, Spanish for “rhinoceros”. The rhinoceros conflates conflicting realities: past and present, peace and violence, durability and extinction, low sight and high sensibility.

Nayra Sanz Fuentes

With a degree in Hispanic Philology, Nayra majored in contemporary literature at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and completed part of her PhD at the Humboldt University of Berlin, thanks to a DAAD scholarship, where she developed research into the relationship of Leni Riefenstahl’s cinema with National Socialism. This work earned her another scholarship to study a Master in Film Directing in New York City, where she lived two years and began to collaborate in film productions.
