Agustí Villaronga

Agustí Villaronga has been living in Barcelona since leaving Majorca as a teenager. A graduate in Art History, he has worked as a teacher of media studies, journalist, art director, costume designer and actor.

In 1985 he directed his first feature film, Tras el cristal (In a Glass Cage), presented in the Berlinale Official Selection. Later, at the Festival de Cannes, he presented El niño de la luna (1988), a film that went on to carry off three Goya Awards and which, together with Tras el cristal and El mar (2000), also winner of an award at Berlin, are not only his most personal films but the ones to have marked his career as a film director.

El pasajero clandestino (1995) and 99.9 (1997) were commissioned films thanks to which he was able to crystallise his own creations. In 2002 he shot in Mexico Aro Tolbukhin, a project helmed by three directors alongside Isaac Racine and Lidia Zimmerman.

Finally, in 2010, he released Pa negre (Black Bread), an adaptation of the book by the writer Emili Teixidor. Apart from earning Nora Navas the Silver Shell for Best Actress at the San Sebastian Festival, the film won 9 Goya Awards, 13 Gaudi Awards and selection by Spain’s Academia de Cine to compete for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

In 2011 he received the Premio Nacional de Cinematografía, the most important official award in Spain.

He will shortly present his latest work, Carta a Eva, a recreation of Eva Perón’s visit to Spain.
