Aron Penczu


Aron Penczu was born in Hungary. He lived internationally while growing up, and studied English literature at Cambridge. In 2015, he moved to Barcelona to take a course in documentary filmmaking. He stayed on in the city to write and make short films, but moved back to London last autumn, where he longs for Barcelona’s clear skies and sunny winters. He hopes to keep coming back to the city for visits, as well as work, however.
