BIOGRAPHY OF THE DIRECTOR

Javier Montes d’Arce is a Mexican film director and photographer based in New York City. As the founder of independent production house Trece Cielos (named after the thirteen skies in ̈Mexica ̈ mythology), Javier has directed, shot and post-produced a variety of video advertising campaigns for many global brands.

Javier worked at the Fulbright Hays Summer Abroad program in México for four consecutive years, where he captured program highlights as well as the beauty, history and culture of México. His work has been exhibited in Asia, Europe and around the United States at Film Festivals, he also has participated at Film Festivals as a member of the jury. While living in Baja California Sur Javier sat on the organizing committee for The Cabos International Film Festival.

For Javier the art of the image is an exercise in revealing the essence of the world around us by capturing a split-second of time and space to magically create a single snapshot. Either in film, video or photography, the greatest beauty of this exercise, he believes, is not only the final work but also the process it initiates, the memory of which remains and continues to bear fruit in the hearts of people.
