Libertad, the first feature film directed by Clara Roquet, known for her short films and screen plays, has just been selected for the ‘International Critics’ Week’ of the Cannes Film Festival, to be held from 7 to 15 July. The film has been shot entirely in Catalonia.
The film’s argument is about Nora (15) whose life ‘will change when Libertad (15), the daughter of the Colombian maid that takes care of her grandmother, arrives at her family’s summer home. The new and intense friendship between the two girls from different backgrounds will mark her awakening to adolescence.’ (Catalan Films)
The Critics’ Week was born in 1962 and its goal is to showcase first and second works by directors from all over the world who do not succumb to commercial tendencies.
