Winner: Golden Bear, 2022 Berlin Film Festival
Spain’s submission for the Best International Feature Film at the 95th Academy Awards

About the filmmaker:

Carla Simón is a Spanish film director and screenwriter who grew up in a small Catalan village. She studied audiovisual communication in Barcelona and California and then attended the London Film School.

The completed film screened at the 2017 Berlin Film Festival where it won the Grand Prix of the Generation Kplus International Jury and the GWFF Best First Feature Award.
