Olvidadas (Documentary Feature)

Olvidadas is a feature documentary currently in stage of development. The film is an experimental attempt to reinterpret film history with a focus on all the invisible women filmmakers and their stories. I started developing this project in 2015, by filming an interview with Cecilia Bartolomé, one of Spain's first female filmmakers, who made feminist films during the Franco dictatorship and was heavily censored. 

During the interview, Cecilia shared with me what it was like to be a feminist filmmaker in those years, and how her films where received by colleagues, people in the film industry, the general public and the francoist government.
