Cultural Capital: Women in Film/Mujeres de Cine

Screening and Conversation

Join us for an evening on women and the film industry in Spain and beyond.

Rastros de Sándalo (Traces of Sandalwood) is an award-winning film that follows two separated sisters—one awash in the colorful melodrama of Bollywood and the other locked in the sterility of a biology lab in Barcelona. Based on the novel by Asha Miró and Anna Soler-Pont, the film was directed by Maria Ripoll and produced by an all-female crew.

After the screening, Aina Clotet, who received a best actress nomination from the 2015 Gaudi Awards for her role in the film, discusses her experience as an actor in what is historically a male-dominated field. Followed by a reception.
