The presentation of the documentary María Casares, la mujer que vivió mil vidas, by Xavier Villaverde took place on 26 October in the Doc España section, the space dedicated by the 67th Seminci to Spanish documentary productions. He was joined by Juan de Dios Serrano Iglesias, producer of the film.
“For me it is a pleasure to be here. It is, in part, a habit because we have already come here several times, to Valladolid” said the producer of the documentary, Juan de Dios Serrano Iglesias.
The documentary, which is presented out of competition, brings us closer in an intimate and profound way to María Casares, an extraordinary woman whose life is marked by the civil war and her exile to France. We will experience with her the most important historical events of the 20th century in Europe, a fascinating life in which leading cultural figures intersect. Committed and tireless in her work, she constantly seeks out audacious and risky stage proposals that will end up making her one of the most dazzling and acclaimed actresses in French cinema and theatre.
“María Casares is enough to make five films. She is such an amazing woman, so incomprehensible…, that you have to choose”, confessed Villaverde.
