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.
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.
For all our projects we work and we collaborate with a wide variety of authors linked and involved with the world of cinema. From filmmakers, screenwriters, producers, designers and assemblers, in order to create creative and unique proposals. In this way, we intend to continue a line that includes both film projects and distinctly cultural and social work.
