Getting by with a little help from his friends
Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Antonio Banderas was back at the Festival yesterday as the star and producer of Gabe Ibañez’s Autómata, which was screened in the Official Section. The film is a result of a really personal commitment by Banderas that came about while he was shooting La piel que habito with Almodóvar. His co-star Elena Anaya, who had worked with Ibañez on Hierro, passed on the script to him, convinced that without is involvement it would never get made. Both Banderas and Ibañez pointed out that the film had been made to do well on the international market and that’s why they shot it in English. Banderas also stressed that it wasn’t a super-production but had been made with blood, sweat and tears and by relying on personal favours, which justified the collaboration of friends like Melanie Griffith or Javier Bardem.
