Carla Simón and Elena Martín

Primera Persona 2018

Carla Simón and Elena Martín are two representatives of a new generation of highly personal Catalan filmmakers. Simón, after making various experimental documentary shorts shown on TV3, became a global phenomenon with the most intimate story she could tell—her own, that of her family: Estiu 1993 (Summer 1993, 2017), the film that won the Award to the Best New Director at the 2018 Goyas, among other prizes. Simón talks to Martín, who became known when she played the lead in the film Les amigues d’Àgata (Agatha’s Friends, 2015) and divides her time between cinema and theatre, between acting and directing. In 2017 she made her debut as a director with Júlia Ist.

Participants: Carla Simón, Elena Martín
