Gustavo Ron, director and screenwriter More information at:
Ron was born in Madrid in 1972. He lived in Cádiz, Valladolid, and Barcelona until the age of 14. Ron studied secondary school in Oxford and Brighton and in 1992 and began his Degree in Journalism at the University of Navarra where he completed his first short films. Two years later he moved to the UK to enter the London Film School to read Production, Direction and film Screenwriting.

After graduating with the year's best short film ("My Kind of Girl") Ron began his professional career as a production assistant in films like "El efecto Mariposa" ("The Butterfly Effect") (dir: Fernando Colomo) or "Why not me" (Dir: Stephane Giusti).

Later he carried out production tasks on several international documentaries, until the year 2000 when he produced his first film "Kundalini" (Dir: Kevin Noland).

Before he plunged into directing, he worked as a screenwriter in Los Angeles and Chicago. His first film, "Mia Sarah" came in 2006, as a tale of lonely characters performed by the popular Verónica Sánchez (Los Serrano), Daniel Guzmán (Aquí no hay quien viva) (Impossible to live here), Manuel Lozano (La lengua de las Mariposas) (Butterfly tongues) and Fernando Fernán Gómez, who appears in a film for the last time and who also had an endearing relationship with Ron.

In 2003 Ron created his own Production Company, El Capitan Pictures, with which he tackles future projects.

In 2010, he debutes internationally as a director with his film "Ways to Live Forever" ("Vivir para siempre") an adaptation of Sally Nichols' book "This is not fair" (Ed. Umbriel). With this film he has received the Screenwriters Guild (Círculo de escritores) medal for the best adapted screenplay.
