Daniel Farías was the director of record of extremely successful telenovela Cristal, which was written by Delia Fiallo. The protagonists were Jeanette Rodríguez, Carlos Mata and Lupita Ferrer. Cristal was a hit in every country where it was sold. It was particularly important in Spain, opening up this country to Venezuelan telenovelas.
