Rubén Guzmán is an Argentinian photographer and media artist, professor and researcher, media curator and programmer. His work spans from photography to media arts, from video and experimental film to peripheral documentaries. His innovative work has been screened in relevant solo and group exhibitions. Among his recent works are The Citadel, Civilization (Prize Télé Toulouse for Best Documentary, Cinélatino, 25èmes Rencontres de Toulouse, France), Stock; City of Blind Alchemists (Production Grant, Canada Council for the Arts, Canada) o Amidst the Stones Hypnotized by the Moon.

The citadel is a portrait of three lonely persons who live in three different locations in the vast Patagonian landscape. At the edge of the universe, the three stories suggest a poetic reflection on time and existence.
