Inti is a filmmaker and musician living and working in London. He was born in Chile to a travelling painter of a mother and a musician and dysfunctional alcoholic of a father. He moved back to the UK as a small child and was raised by his single mother in London.
After a brief stint studying fine art at school, Inti left to pursue a career as a musician, where he spent several years writing and recording, releasing records to critical acclaim and touring internationally. Throughout this time he began to work more and more with film as a medium, creating visualisers and music videos both for his own music and on commission for other artists and record labels.
In 2017 Inti embarked on the creation of Love From Santiago, his debut short film, a story based on his own mothers experience at the hands of his father. A project that brought together for the first time, his work in both the mediums he has dedicated his life to practising, film and music. Through this unique approach to storytelling, he unites the emotional language of these two incredibly powerful art forms.
‘Love From Santiago’ picked up the awards for ‘best short film’ at the Santa Fe film festival (2020) and the Medellin International film festival (2019). It won ‘best short based on a true story’ at the New Renaissance film festival (2020) and received a silver film award at the Kyiv International film festival (2020). The film has achieved official selection at Oscar qualifying film festivals and has screened in Europe, the USA and Latin America, it will be released online in 2021.
Inti is currently in pre-production for his next short, Moon Mountain, due to shoot summer 2021.
