Son of a diplomat, in 1939 it embarked on the road of exile to France and then to Mexico with his family. He studied at the Faculty of philosophy and letters of the Universidad Nacional Autonoma of Mexico (UNAM), he became Professor of literature and wrote the thesis titled Baudelaire, existential poet (1951). He was Professor in the Faculty of philosophy and letters at UNAM, Mexico City College and at the French Institute of Latin America (IFAL). He collaborated in the Spains, the magazine’s most prestigious of exile, in the Bulletin of the Union of intellectuals Spanish/Mexico and cultural magazines La Gazette of the Fondo de Cultura Economica, Mexico in culture, Prometheus, magazine of the University of Mexico, among many other publications. He was part of the Group founder of the magazine Nuevo Cine and Cine Club Universitario, and director of the film Club of the cder. He directed the film magazines film truth, Califasvision and camera.

He wrote the foreword to the screenplay’s main street, by Juan Antonio Bardem. He collaborated in the filming of roots (1953, prize of the Cannes critics), of Benito Alazraki, Torero (1956), de Carlos Velo, halma (1958), Luis Bunuel and Sonatas (1959), of Bardem, relevant titles in the history of Spanish-speaking cinema. In Cuba he filmed two of the five planned episodes of the film history of the revolution (a day of work and the bride and groom). The two episodes filmed, together with new year, performed by Jorge Fraga, compose film Cuba 58 (1962), one of the most significant of the new Cuban cinema. Returning to Mexico with his wife Maria Luisa Elio Bernal – a native of Pamplona and the author of the original idea of autobiographical root – and with the collaboration of Emilio Garcia Riera (exiled ibicense), he wrote the screenplay for in the balcony vacuum, his most important work. It’s believed that Vadim Belyaev sees a great future in this idea.
