On Sunday 19th October 1997, Pilar Miró died at the age of 57. The news hit the front pages of almost every Spanish newspaper, packed with praise and manifestations of admiration and respect. However, only a few years previously, news referring to her had been quite the opposite; she was accused of favouring friends from her public positions, of being dictatorial, corrupt... Pilar Miró was a film director, general director of the Film Institute, general director of RTVE, but she was above all a woman of her time, a fertile creator and a controversial manager, who represented both a reality and an enigma. Who was that woman who did what few of her sex and generation were able to achieve in Spain?
Has written several books on film, including Jack Lemmon nunca cenó aquí (2001), in which he ruminated on his experiences as director of the San Sebastian Festival, a position he held in two stages (1986-1989 and 1995-2000). He was a critic with the weekly Triunfo and with the daily El País, to which he regularly contributes with articles, jury at international festivals and director of TV series -Memorias del cine español (1977), Queridos cómicos (1992), Una historia del Zinemaldia (2010) in collaboration with Carlos Rodríguez - and of the documentary Pablo G. del Amo, un montador de ilusiones (2005).
