Project

I’ll take part in the Connecta Residency, organized by Cinema Lliure, which takes place in Palma de Mallorca. It’ll be a space for collective creation and learning about cinematographic art, where eight residents will develop a short film proposal, with the teachings of master classes and the advice of different professionals in the industry.
