Thymaya is a filmmaker based in Mexico City and Los Angeles. His first documentary feature Stolen Seas was hailed as "magnificent" by the New York Times, and Variety wrote that its "three years' worth of visits to one of the world's most volatile hot zones, is as exciting as its content". Stolen Seas won the Boccolino Doro at the Locarno Film festival critics week and enjoys a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. In 2015, Thymaya co-wrote and produced the independent film Live Cargo directed by Logan Sandler, starring Keith Stanfield and Dree Hemingway. Live Cargo premiered in competition at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival and had its theatrical debut in spring 2017. Thymaya co-wrote the short film, Across Our Lands, directed by Fiona Godivier, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival 2017.
