AADK Spain has invited the filmmaker Nayra Sanz Fuentes to share her body of work -personal and commissioned- and to have a discussion with the audience. She will present her latest short film “Sub Terrae”, which is a brief introduction to the character Carlos Oroza , who is featured in the film “Tan Antiguo como el Mundo”. Additionally, she will present a work in progress, which is likely to be finalised during her stay in Blanca. We are also interested in analysing her commissioned cultural projects, which are a series of videos about the work of other artists in which we not only see the cinematographic treatment of each project but also how Naira places herself in the glaze of the portrayed work.

Nayra Sanz Fuentes Director, screenwriter, producer and producer - has a degree in Hispanic Philology and specialized her studies in contemporary literature. She did part of her doctoral thesis, which will be presented at the end of 2017, at the Humboldt University in Berlin thanks to a German scholarship from the DAAD. Her study analyses the National Socialist body through the work of the filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl. With this work she received another scholarship to study a Master of Film Direction in New York, where she resided two years and began to work in cinematographic productions.
