BRAGANZA

Alfredo de Braganza is the winner of international awards for his role as scriptwriter, producer and film director

He has traveled to different countries and has worked in various fields. Over the past 15 years he has lived in India. His feature documentary in Hindi language Smoking Babas Holy Men of India, was premiered at the International Film Festival of Madrid. His feature film in Tamil language Maayan The Fisherman, was nominated for best independent film in the United States; a production that made him the first Spanish person to make a feature film in India, on celluloid and native language.
