Wallace Stevens worked for an insurance company for 40 years. Every day he got up at 6am and went to bed at 9pm. In his life there are no remarkable events or extravagant episodes. No one would imagine that this man of an ordinary and boring life was the author of one of the most singular poetic works of the 20th century.

César Souto holds a degree in journalism from USC (Santiago de Compostela), and a master’s degree in Creative Documentary from UPF (Barcelona). He has worked as a journalist at Televisión de Galicia since 1998 and is the author of the poetry collections Sucesos (2004), Campo aberto (2019) and A Herdade (2021). His first documentary film, Os dias afogados (2015), co-directed with Luis Avilés Baquero, received the award for best film in the Latin American Competition at FIDOCS (Santiago de Chile) in 2016 and the award for best film in the Spanish Competition at FI Miradasdoc in 2017, among others. A Foreign Song (2022) was premiered at FICX (Gijón, Spain), where it received the award for Best Spanish Feature Film and Best Spanish Direction.
