Julio Martino is no stranger to film. Brought up in the environment of a film rental shop owned by his father, he always had an interest in the genre. He built on this and focussed more on directing rather than acting, and studied and worked his way to become an accomplished director in theatre, directing performances in both UK and Chicago. Country of Hotels is his film debut and he describes the transition between stage and screen and details the differences between the two. This was a fascinating insight into the world of directing of theatre and film, with some brilliant behind the scenes information about his film.
