Carlos Martínez-Peñalver returns to Novos Cinemas to talk about his project where he participated in LAB04, Á procura da estrela. Taking as a reference its landscape, its climate and its unique inhabitants, the film combines fiction and documentary to try to illustrate the character of Serra da Estrela.
Carlos Martínez-Peñalver (Vigo, 1991) got a degree in Audiovisual Communication at USC and Universitat Pompeu Fabra. He completed his academic formation with the Master’s Degree at ESCAC in Editing and the Master’s Degree in Contemporary Film and Audiovisual Studies. Over the last few years he has held workshops with Jean Gabriel Périot, Andrés Duque, Jodie Mack or Fernando Franco.
Carlos combines editing with directing, making short films (Nocturna, Juventud Gruyère, Después de la Bandera and Cómo desaparecer) with which he participated in festivals such as Oberhausen, Cinespaña, the Mostra de Cinema Periférico (S8) or Curtocircuito. Currently, he is in the post-production phase of his first film, Á procura da estrela.
Right after Ángel and Silvia, Liliana Torres will look back on the formalization of a project that starts from her own biography. Converted into the dramatic engine of her film, ¿Qué hicimos mal?, and combining self-exposure, self-exploration and the illustration of her love and sentimental itinerary, the Catalan filmmaker reveals the emotional instability that determines our current and fragile existence.
Liliana Torres (Vic, 1980) got her degree in Directing at the ESCAC, in Barcelona, and was specialised in Documentary Filmmaking at the CCC in Mexico City. She is the author of the short films Anteayer (2005) and Quince años (2012), both internationally acclaimed, and the documentaries Todos los trabajos de la mujer, Viviendo en la piedra and Hayati, co-directed with Sofía Escudé (awarded in Malaga and by the Catalan Journalists Association). Family Tour, her first feature film, premiered in 2013 in San Sebastian in the Zabaltegui section, received the Critics’ Prize at Rec Tarragona, a Special Mention at the Atlántida Film Festival, the award for Best European Film at the European Crossing Borders and the Best New Director award from the Catalan Directors’ Association. Liliana has also an extensive career as an editor and producer. ¿Qué hicimos mal? is her second fiction feature film.
