Spanish filmmaker, currently based in Seoul.
As a spanish director I can tell you that you are wrong when you say "Despite the decidedly male focus of most Spanish films, ..."
First, you could say "most films". Period. Not "Spanish films".
And second: I'm not gonna say Spain has no sexism or that we live in a equal country. That wouldn't be true. However, as a filmmaker, I can tell you several films or filmmakers who are always working with women. At least, I want to believe, we are getting to a more balanced scenario. Something I don't see happening anywhere else.
Anyway! Good writing and interesting point of view!
Hello James! Thank you for your reply!
Actually is not my show reel the video that you saw on the main page of homelandfilms, is just the last video I edit for a project for an architect.
Still, I appreciate your honesty! I hope you watched my films as well. I think that speaks better about my work :)
