Torremolinos 73
Made in Spain

One day in the early 70s, an encyclopaedia salesman Alfredo López and his lovely wife Carmen receive a proposition from Alfredo's boss that will change their lives forever. He asks them to make their own amateur erotic movies for exclusive distribution in Scandinavia. Alfredo discovers his passion for filmmaking and launches into a successful directing career with Carmen as the star and muse of his movies. Inspired by Ingmar Bergman, Alfredo decides to become a ?serious? director and ends up filming with a Danish crew what he believes will be the movie of his life: Torremolinos 73.
Born in Bilbao. In 1988 he directed Mamá, a short film which became a cult among Spanish movie buffs in which Alex de la Iglesia made his debut as artistic director. His career continued in the USA, where he obtained a PhD in Directing from New York University and directed the short film Truth and Beauty, winner of an award at the Palm Springs Festival. He was a film professor at the New York Film Academy and has directed commercials in the USA and the videoclip Kuroi Boots in Japan. Torremolinos 73 is his first feature film.
