Bio


 

Born in Havana, Cuba, Asori Soto is a director/producer that studied art history at the University of Havana and documentary filmmaking through NYU Tisch at the Ludwig Foundation in Cuba. He began his career in the early 2000s as an active founder of the Cuban Independent Film Movement, producing and directing two low-budget feature films, several short films and commercials. In 2006, he was named the Best Narrative Director at the Havana New Directors Film Festival. Shortly after he directed “THE KING OF TIMBA”, a music documentary, and he co-directed “VEDADO”, a student film that became the first Cuban independent feature film. 

 

Asori later moved to Los Angeles, where he spent a couple of years producing short-form content before becoming an Executive Producer at The Cortez Brothers, a commercial production company. There, he produced everything from low-budget to multi-million dollar commercial campaigns for multiple international brands.

 

Asori is currently directing and producing a wide range of projects, from branded content videos to full-length documentaries. The first of these projects is Cuban Food Stories, an unprecedented feature-length travel documentary on Cuban food, culture, and society. His upcoming projects include the docu-series Food Stories inspired by this film and his discovery of the relationship between culinary traditions and cultural heritage values. Asori resides in the East Village, New York City, where he cooks amazing meals in his free time.
