Notes Boxer Executive Producer Beth George, “Mireia brings a fresh and unexpected perspective to everything she does, and her work always stirs. We couldn’t be more excited to be working with her.” Says Pujol, “I always try to present interesting characters and places in a poetic, visual way. Sometimes all it takes is a look, a brief exchange or a carefully composed shot to know a lot about a person or location. Boxer’s directors often pull this off and I’m very happy to be a part of their family.”
Pujol grew up in Barcelona and attended University Ramon Llull there before shipping off to New York Film Academy in Manhattan.
