Did you know that Guillermo helped create the film school at the University of Guadalajara? Check out this excerpt from an interview with SLANT back in May of 2009.
GDT: But I went to school in Guadalajara, but it was a very small film school that we created. It became the film school of the university—but we created it. There was no film school in Guadalajara as a kid, so we said “let’s make one” and eventually the university formalized it.
Slant: Were you teaching there for a while?
GDT: The first year I was learning, the second year I was teaching.
Slant: Did you like being a professor?
GDT: Yeah, I’d actually love to teach again. I really enjoy that process.
So there you go – you’re little GDT fun fact for the day.
