Marta Hernaiz Pidal


I feel fascinated by presenting the quotidien and everyday banalities, using humour as a tool to underline deeper issues in today´s society. Filmmaking has become an opportunity for me to understand “the other”, the wide and unpredictable spectrum of human behaviors, as well as myself.
