Director Biography – Armando Ravelo

He has directed several shortfilms and a feature films with great critical and public acclaim. His cinematographic work (Bentejuí Project), takes the History of the Canary Islands to the screens.
Ravelo, who has won several awards at national and international festivals, started this project with ‘Ansite’ in 2012.

In early 2021, his first feature film ‘La piel del volcán’ premiered, becoming the most watched Canarian film in theaters so far this century.

With ‘Once upon a time in the Canaries’, the author moves away from the historical genre to make a social chronicle with the hope of raising awareness of the problem of continental African migration to the Canary Islands.

Director Statement:

This film is the result of the effort of many people dedicated to tell a story about the migratory movements from Africa to the Spanish islands. Many people start the journey and only a few finish it.

Ruins of Memories by Badradeen Mohammed

On a sunny autumn day

I was leaning on a plastic chair in front of my house

With sweat dripping from my body

Caused by the high temperature

And resentment for the intensity of my anger

Suddenly, without realising I found myself standing up

So fascinated by the landscape

The breathtaking beauty and charm

This was magnificence and harmony which I had not found in any instance of my life

A cluster of white clouds and in just moments fantastic coloured

Were formed in red-dark and others were black and grey

Added to the sky was like a page, draped in lothario blue

Like a masterful painting, fine

Drawn by skilled artist

Which did not leave any room for error

Everyone was running down looking for a shelter to escape the heavy rain

I did not move a finger
