Francisco "Paco" Bardales is a writer, historian, journalist, writer, producer and film director, blogger and former director of the National Institute of Culture in Perù. He is also the creator of Diario of IQT, a blog influenced by his work IQT (Remixes).
Martin Casapía Casanova is a young director. He has made several shorts of different genres, but Sin Salida is the director's career landmark.
P. Bardales: “Maligno is inspired by one of the most famous and sinister myths of the Peruvian Amazon, which is about a cruel spirit called "Maligno". This is a story that has passed from generation to generation and really captivated me. The story takes place in a hospital where the curse was asleep for 30 years, but when it wakes up begins to take as many souls as it can.“
M. Casapía: "Maligno is my first movie and I'm very happy with the outcome, because it’s a film that has nothing to envy to most foreign films. I think my career has started on the right foot and I feel very fortunate to have worked with the spectacular people of AV FILMS."
