José María Oliveira Aldamiz was a Spanish film director. He was also one of the earliest Spaniards to join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the first stake president in Spain. After joining the Church, Oliveira went on to write, produce and direct at least two major Spanish films: "Los Muertos, la carne y el diablo" (1974) and "Las Flores del miedo" (1973). Both both films incorporated Gospel themes, and one even included Latter-day Saint missionaries. Together these two films grossed nearly 10 million pesetas at the box office.
