Carla Simón: “I make resistance films”

In Carne Cruda we interview the director Carla Simón, winner of the Golden Bear in Berlin thanks to her second feature film as director, “Alcarrás”.

With only two films, this 35-year-old from Barcelona has created a world of her own with her transparent and raw look at the unique stories of ordinary people: neorealism made in Catalonia. “Alcarrás” is a spectacular investigation about family, work and the land that removes like a hoe many of the issues that are going through us today as a society: the end of an era for many generations of farmers; the yoke of extensive models that suffocate the countryside; the sad loss of a good habit: caring for and pampering the land in which one is born.

You can listen here to the complete film monograph with Marta Medina in which we take a walk through the Malaga Festival, review the Oscars and premiere a section with TCM Now on the 80th anniversary of Michael Haneke.
