Interview by Directed by Women International Celebration
September 18, 2016
The #DirectedbyWomen events unfolding in Spain are invigorating. We had a chance to converse with Lucía Valverde & Rebeca Sánchez López two members of the amazing team of filmmakers organizing the #DirectedbyWomenSpain Film Viewing Parties in Madrid and Barcelona.
Please take a moment to read what they have to share, explore the programs they’re creating this month, then start thinking about how you want to engage in next year’s #DirectedbyWomen Worldwide Film Viewing Party. Let’s keep weaving connections as we build a deep culture of appreciation within the global film community!
"We have been really impressed with your film, and we appreciate the way you explore the issue of violence against women capturing unconscious emotional reactions, as well as your refined cinematography and sapient use of close-ups reminding us of Krzysztof Kieślowski's early work, so we'll be pleased to submit you a personal interview about your cinema, which will be published in the next issue of our net review."
"Un court-métrage réalisé par l'Espagnole Lucia Valverde, qui a grandi au Grand-Duché, et dont l'acteur principal n'est autre que Luc Spada."
"En plus d'utiliser des décors du Grand-Duché comme le Findel, le film parle du melting-pot à la luxembourgeoise, et ce, avec un ton plutôt humoristique."
"On y entend aussi toutes les langues. «Le couple parle anglais, le héros va rencontrer de vieilles dames qui s'expriment en Luxembourgeois, il va aussi tomber sur ses voisins Italiens, d'autres Portugais et parler avec des enfants en français»"
"Papá te quiere mucho"- Critic by Yolanda Aguas in CINET-FÄRO
March 14, 2013
"The director and screenwriter of this magnificent and breathtaking short film decided to shoot it in a sequence shot because she needed to tell the story as "an event that we are witnessing in real time, where the camera travels through the space revealing the reality and deepest emotions of our main character, without cuts."
"Beware of this young director, actress, screenwriter and producer because she can bring a lot to Spanish Cinema."
