Emilio Gómez Muriel

Emilio Gómez Muriel was a prolific Mexican film director, active between the 1930s and the 1970s.

He is known for melodramas,[1] but one of his first films was Redes (release: 1936), an attempt at social cinema with a mostly non-professional cast.[2]

He won an award at the 1960 San Sebastian Film Festival for Simitrio.


More of his films are the subject of articles on Spanish Wikipedia.
