Bio

With both Catalan and North African roots, she has a degree in Social Education from the University of Vic and is an activist. She tries to have a strong presence on social media, and leads seminars, lectures and writes articles in various media on feminism and anti-racism. Her passion for cinema has led her to become involved, for the last six years, in the Vic Oriental Film Festival. Entre la pedra i el martell is her first feature film script.

Project

I will be working on a project titled Entre la pedra i el martell, together with Àlex Lora Cercós. Entre la pedra i el martell tells the story of Pol Khaled, a boy from Ripoll who is around 20 years old, with a Moroccan father and a Catalan mother, and a complex identity. Set in 2017, the film focuses on specific events that invite us to reflect on the nature of the attacks that took place that same year in Barcelona and Cambrils. Our motivation stems from wanting to make a film that, without passing judgement, prompts the audience to question certain things and thus helps build bridges.

After five years in London preparing a thesis on the origins of queer, theory, David decides to end a toxic relationship and return to a Barcelona that is caught between the euphoria of the Olympics and the fear of AIDS. There, he starts writing a diary to get over his ex and create a new David.
