Enrique Cerezo, distributor, producer and cinephile
A passionate film lover since childhood, Enrique Cerezo has built a prolific career and exerted considerable influence in the film industry through his work in a range of areas, including production, filmmaking and distribution.
An unwavering interest in history and culture within the ”seventh art” has led him to undertake painstaking work to recover and restore films from all over the world, giving rise to one of Europe’s largest and most extensive film archives.
Recover, preserve and disseminate
Preserving classic films, making them accessible and disseminating them are the main objectives of the Mercury Films distribution company.
