Carlos SAURA

Carlos Saura (Huesca, 1932) studied film at the Institute for Research and Cinematic experiences (IIEC) in Madrid. His first feature, "The Gulfs" (1959), opens the way of Neorealism in Spanish cinema and opens one of the most internationally significant paths, critical respect and applause from the national scene. Some of his highlighted works throughout all these years are “La Caza” (1965), award for best director in Berlin, "La prima Angélica" (1973) and "Cría Cuervos" (1975), both of which gave him the special award of the Jury in Cannes, "Elisa vida mía" (1977), "Cría Cuervos", with which he won the Golden Bear in Berlin as also would do six years later with "Deprisa, deprisa", "¡Ay, Carmela!" (1990 ), which received thirteen Goyas or the celebrated trilogy with Antonio Gades formed by of "Bodas de sangre" (1981), "Carmen" (1983) and "El Amor brujo" (1986), where he would experience and would shape a new closely genre linked to dance and music, another of his great passions.

Feroz Honor Award for his career in 2015, Saura's work also includes an important production of documentaries, his career as a photographer and his literary fiction and essays.
