BIO

Marco Castro is a Peruvian film director, writer and make up artist. A chance encounter with Warhol during his teens, kickstarted his interest for photography and performance. At the age of 18 he started working as a make up artist with François Nars, leading him to collaborate in sittings with world renowned photographers such as Nan Goldin, Brigitte Lacombe, David Lachapelle, Elaine Constantine. Through his apprenticeship as a makeup artist he was able to strengthen his knowledge and respect for storytelling through moving and still imagery.He moved to Madrid, were he continued pursuing his film career and started working at El Deseo, Pedro Almodóvar’s production company. During his years living in Spain he produced and directed a number of short films, video art installations and photographs that have been displayed in many different art galleries, film festivals and museums. In 2005 he met Loles Leon, a chica de Almodóvar, and together they founded Emperactriz Films. In 2006, they released their first project, Castro’s film, Manuela. That same year he collaborated with the French filmotheque in their Pedro Almodóvar exhibition.
