Biografía del Director
Elvis Ribogerto Caj Cojoc was born in Coban, Guatemala. Caj started to make films when he won the National Competition in Literature, 2008 with "Nuestra Naturaleza". He had never used a videocamera before when he was granted a stipendium from the Norwegian Embassy in Guatemala to participate in several filmworkshops at Casa Comal, Guatemala City. He moved from the countryside to the capital and started learning about cinema and he fell in love with the art form.
Caj's first workshop film was selected to Havana Film Festival in 2012 and to Vancouver Latin American Film Festival in 2012. His second workshop short FLOR BLANCA represented Guatemala at Icaro Film Festival. He also worked at the Norwegian Embassy to fund the first Mayan Cinema in Guatemala this year.
Caj's new short LIREMU BARANA (his first film with a budget and crew) won best script by the Ministery of Guatemala and it is produced by Mer Film.
Caj is now developing his first feature with Mer Film as part of EAVE Puentes 2018. He participated in Guadalajara Talents 2019.
