‘Icíar is more than a good director of actors. The biggest question is not, “How do we make this film” but “What film should we make?” Icíar’s choices have been impeccable. Her stories are humane, compassionate and show a commitment to justice and tolerance. And the chuckle is never far away.’
– Ken Loach on Icíar Bollaín
With her new film Yuli in general release and her next, La boda de Rosa, in pre-production, the time is perfect for EIFF to present a comprehensive look back at the directorial career of highly acclaimed Spanish director, writer, actor and producer Icíar Bollaín.
