Carlos Saura

Carlos Saura

Carlos Saura (Huesca, 1932) moved to Madrid when he was young and studied industrial engineering, only to give up this career to pursue his true calling at the Instituto de Investigaciones y Estudios Cinematográficos (Cinematographic Study and Research Institute). His first film was The Delinquents, but success arrived three years later with The Hunt, which won him the Silver Bear for Best Director at the Berlinale. In the same period he lost his teaching job for strictly political reasons (Franco's censorship). He went on to make many award-winning films and documentaries, including Cousin Angelica in 1973 (Special Jury Prize at Cannes), Cria Cuervos in 1975 (the same prize at Cannes), andFast, Fast in 1981 (Golden Bear at the Berlinale). Saura was thrice nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign-Language Film, for his films Mama Turns 100Carmenand Tango.
