In Jonc’s Silence (2013)

 

In Jonc’s Silence explores the everyday lives of different people of all ages with intellectual disabilities. They allow us to see their daily lives. Along with these testimonies, we have also contacted several specialists who speak from a professional viewpoint on intellectual disabilities. Finally, the documentary is complete with various artistic scenes in which personalities like Sol Pico, Ferran Carvajal, philosopher and writer Rafael Argullol, the clown Jango Edwards and musical groups Fundación Tony Manero and Vetusta Morla collaborate.
This structure aims to combine different languages and forms of discourse: theoretical, experiential and artistic, with the desire to reflect on the difference and with the conviction that art can be a way to stop the difference from being different.

Voids (2011)

 

The project of documentary Voids was conceived as a way to offer a perspective about domestic violence which is often unknown to most people -the one from the aggressors themselves.
After the making of documentary Wounds, which focused on mistreated women, this project tries to contribute extra features to the view of the problem by giving a voice to those men who lived this situation. They share what they witnessed and become self-conscious about their own experiences and their future.

Wounds (2009)

 

Wounds is the result of an on-field project with women and transsexual people about domestic violence. This audiovisual project intends to show how violence against women is violence against everything the aggressor considers inferior, everything which, in fact, represents womanliness. The narrative thread created by actress and poet Susanna Barranco is combined with the appearance of women whose interviews offer the audience a picture of how they face life and their memories, what love has meant to them and what it means to them now, what they think about their aggressor… Thus, Wounds presents a patchwork about humankind being struck by aggressive sexist stereotypes and claims the dignity of every woman.

I Am Part of your World (2008)

 

Many of us women had to walk apart from this world to journey by ourselves, to change our gender.
The journey has sometimes been hard, I’m sure about it.
Now I want to be treated with respect. Now I would like you to respect my identity. Do not make me feel bad about my physical changes, that’s not your business. Your world and mine should be the same. I am part pf your world.

Nude (---)

 

Nude is a documentary project that delves again into the perspective of gender, thinking over the position of women in a field as broad and ambiguous as prostitution, from a raw, intimate and delicate view, from the honesty of testimonies that break their silence and show themselves beyond their skin.
Faced with the indignation of a group that demands their rights as sex workers and a dual society accessing their services but turning their back on them, what the political and social red lines which this group faces are.
From Barcelona, one of the meccas of illegal prostitution in Europe, we will travel to the city of Amsterdam to observe the functioning of a regulated sector with the aim of answering the questions of a global phenomenon.
