“The Bastards' Fig Tree” is her second feature film. Best Director Award in Albuquerque Film & Music Experience 2018, she has been awarded for her Cinematic Excellence in Hollywood Film Festival, among other recognitions. In “The Bastards Fig Tree”, her script and her directing turns the deep message of Ramiro Pinilla’s novel into a delirious and amusing rereading of the historical memory of the Spanish Civil War, still a taboo for Spanish society even today.
For her first feature film, “Three lies” (2014), she obtained the Best Film Award in the main Spanish Opera Prima festival, Tudela 2014, and the Grand Festival Prize at the World Premieres Film Festival of Philippines 2015. She is also a script writer, and moreover, an overarching movie maker that manages the times of the film production making the complicated look easy.
