Lucía Alemany, the director of the Opening Film of the festival, ‘La inocencia‘, will be present in Amsterdam to introduce this wonderful film!
She was born in 1985 in Traiguera, a small village in the autonomous region of Valencia, and lived there until she was 18-years-old. At that point, she moved to Vic to start a bachelor’s degree in Audiovisual Communication. In 2009 she began her studies at ESCAC (School of Cinema & Audiovisual Arts of Catalonia), specializing in Film Direction.
Throughout those years of academic studies, Lucía focused her attention on how to direct actors in the most realistic way that is possible, resorting to improvisation as the main driving force in all her practical work. Lucía’s constant search for realism in the strictest sense of the word gave rise to the short film 14 ANYS I UN DIA (14 years and 1 day), which premiered at Seminci in 2015.
The following year, in 2016, Lucía started writing, along with Laia Soler Aragonés, the script for THE INNOCENCE, which she shot in 2018, in the village where she was born and raised. She has participated as production assistant in different movies such as “EL OLIVO” directed by Iciar Bollain. And in 2019 has directed the TV series “69 RAONS” (69 reasons) a documentary about affective and sexual education broadcasted by À Punt Mèdia.
