Bonus Trivia

.

Prior to becoming a full-time filmmaker, Medem wrote professional film reviews for various Spanish print publications.

.

Despite being obsessed by filmmaking as a teenager, Medem earned a degree in medicine from the University of Basque County in 1985, and initially planned on becoming a doctor. Shortly after graduating in 1985, however, he decided to turn his attention to filmmaking on a full-time basis.

.

Stanley Kubrick was such an admirer of Medem's 1993 comedy-drama "The Red Squirrel," that the iconic director suggested Medem's name when Steven Spielberg was looking for someone to direct "The Mask of Zorro." Not wanting to be pinned down to the demands of a studio, however, Medem politely declined Spielberg's offer, and went on to direct the award-winning "Lovers of the Arctic Circle" (1998) instead.
