    Cinema makes me value every moment of life with intensity, it makes me observe all those details that this wonderful yet painful world can offer us.

    Carla Simón (1986) was raised in a small Catalan village. In 2011 she was awarded with a scholarship and moved to the United Kingdom to study at the London Film School, where she earned an MA. Her autobiographical debut feature SUMMER 1993 won the GWFF Best First Feature Award and the Grand Prix of the Generation Kplus at Berlinale 2017, among many other prizes all over the world. Carla also received the “Women in Motion” Young Talent Award in Cannes 2018. Alcarràs is her second feature in development, also taking part in the Cannes Cinéfondation Residence and Nipkow Programm.
