About

Alex Pina and his production team have continually redefined fiction in Spain. Not limited to television, his career has also spun into the film industry.

He directed and wrote the screenplay for Kamikaze (2004), which won the Audience Award at the Miami International Festival. He also wrote and produced ‘Brain Drain - Fuga de cerebros’ (Silver Biznaga at Málaga Film Festival), ‘Three Steps above Heaven – Tres metros sobre el cielo’, ‘Brain Drain 2 - Fuga de Cerebros 2’, and ‘I Want You - Tengo ganas de ti’, one of the highest-grossing films in Spain in recent history.

His fiction is defined by the construction of emblematic, magnetic characters, with a side, transversal outlook on life. In the creative development of such characters, he combines both adrenaline rush and emotional sensitivity.
