Winner of the Audience Award and the Special Jury Award at the Malaga Film Festival, the main character in the debut film by actor Paco León is Carmina, a 58-year-old woman who runs a shop selling Iberian products in Seville.

Its star, Carmina Barrios, also won the Best Actress Award at the Malaga Film Festival.
 

BIOGRAPHY

Paco León debuts in film directing with Carmina o revienta, with which he won the Audience Award, the Special Jury Prize and the Best Actress Award (Carmina Barrios) at the Malaga Festival. It's not the first time the actor has taken to the director's chair; he already tried the experience last year with The Hole, a cabaret that continues to harvest success in Madrid's Häagen-Dazs Theatre, where he works as artistic director, scriptwriter and associate producer. His first inroads to this aspect of the audiovisual world is to be found in Ácaros, a series for the Cuatro TV channel which he directed and produced; or in Con lengua, a short produced by and starring himself. Throughout his career as an actor, he has earned three Silver Fotogramas, a prize from the Unión de Actores, 2 Golden TP awards, 3 Academia de la Televisión awards and one Ondas award.
