Biography
He was born in Barcelona in 1968. Producer and autodidact scriptwriter, he made his first productions in visual anthropology in Mexico, Cuba and India.At a later period he began his initiation in fiction with shorts such as 0’7 ya!! and the TV film Renda Antiga. In 2000 he launched his first feature film Tatawo. Since then he has focused on writing scripts and experimenting in various audiovisual fields. Part of this process takes shape in his feature film The Taxi Thief.

New cinema from Spain

The Taxi Thief / Jo Sol (Jordi Solé)

José R. carries out his routine as taxi-driver in the city of Barcelona. His life would be no different to that of any other 52-year-old taxi-driver if it weren’t for the fact that he drives stolen taxis. José steals to make a living. How can one find oneself in such an absurd situation? Is he mad, or is it the system and its logic that inexorably drive a jobless worker to such a paradox?
