. Indeed, this, her new film, will have the honour of opening the storied Valladolid International Film Festival this Saturday. The lucky recipient of the recent 2020 National Film Award will present her movie – which was produced by the Almodóvar brothers’ El Deseo outfit, and which stars Timothy Spall, Sarita Choudhury, Carmen Machi and Ana Torrent – in the Calderón Theatre at an edition of the festival that, as is increasingly becoming the norm for this type of event, will go hybrid. It will thus unspool in a physical, on-site format as well as online (a selection of some of the 150 titles that the festival has picked will be watchable on the Filmin platform, while press conferences, master classes and meetings with industry professionals will be rebroadcast live via the Canal Seminci channel).

Tribute will be paid to Valladolid-born author Miguel Delibes, in celebration of his 100th birthday, and two of his favourite features will be screened to mark the occasion: Mon Oncle by Jacques Tati and A Streetcar Named Desire by Elia Kazan.
