(Bühl, Germany. 1987)
Isabel Muruzábal Lamberti studied film theory and directing at the University of Amsterdam, at the TISCH School of the Arts in New York and at the Netherlands Film Academy. While initially concentrating on documentary filmmaking, during her studies she increasingly developed her personal style in a hybrid cinema somewhere between reality and fiction. Her short films Volando voy (2015), which received the Torino Award at Nest Film Students in San Sebastian, and Amor (2017) were selected, nominated and acclaimed with awards at numerous film festivals around the world, such as IDFA and Camerimage; they were also acquired by ARTE France. In 2018 she co-directed the Dutch remake of the successful youth series Skam for public television. Her latest short, Father (2019), premiered this summer at the Locarno Film Festival. Her feature film debut, El azul bajo sus pies, is currently in post-production and was presented at the Torino Film Lab.
