BIOGRAPHY

Influential Spanish industry figure who entered film distribution at the age of 17, set up a distribution company, Brepi Films with Jose Lopez Brea in 1960 and produced his first feature the same year. Piedra made several local films before moving into the international sphere with Orson Welles' "Chimes at Midnight" (1966). He went into exhibition in the mid-1980s, opening the Cines Luna twin in downtown Madrid and produced Carlos Saura's dance trilogy starring Antonio Gades: "Blood Wedding" (1980), "Carmen" (1983) and "El Amor Brujo" (1986). Piedra was married to actress Emma Penella from 1967 until his death in 1991.
