I will work on my project titled Sants. While dealing with her mother's illness, Lali, a woman in her thirties, is thrown into a subculture of thieves who steal figures of saints.


The two retreats I did in Faber, within the umbrella of the Script Residence of the Catalan Film Academy, helped me to continue searching for the film I am preparing. At Faber I was able to live and share with other filmmaker colleagues, I could enjoy group workshops and one-to-one sessions with professionals of film writing, I could decompress and get inspired by the landscapes of the Fageda d'en Jordà and Olot. Faber is an ideal place to focus on artistic creation and I am convinced it has been essential to the development of my project. I hope I get to go back very soon.
