Her directing credits include Hi, Are You Alone?, Flowers from Another World, Take My Eyes, which won seven Goya Awards, Mataharis, Even the Rain and The Olive Tree. As an actor she has starred in many films, including José Luis Cuerda’s Tocando Fondo, Ken Loach’s Land and Freedom, and Jose Luis Borau’s Niño Nadie and Leo, for which she was nominated for the Goya for Best Actress.

The Olive Tree (El olivo)


With a memorable script by Paul Laverty (Carla’s Song, My Name is Joe), Bollaín delivers a strong emotional drama featuring beautifully pitched performances from a cast including Anna Castillo and Javier Gutiérrez (Marshland, Champions). Castillo’s work on The Olive Tree earned her the Goya Award for Best New Actress. The Olive Tree screened at the 70th EIFF, the same year Bollaín was on the jury for the Michael Powell Award. [15]
