Shooting begins on first Spanish robot film, Eva
by Sergio Ríos Pérez
The latest film released as part of this series, whose aim is to give young directors a chance to make the leap to features, was Mar Coll’s Three Days With the Family, which has been nominated for two Goyas. Also, soon to be launched is Elena Trapé’s Blog, which is currently in post-production.
Eva is set in a futuristic, snow-covered world in which humans live alongside robots. It centres on an 11-year-old girl who suffers from amnesia as a result of a tragic accident that took her mother's life.
ESCAC is one of the most important film schools in Europe and has gained an excellent reputation thanks to a generation of students who have brought a breath of fresh air to Spanish cinema, including J. A. Bayona (The Orphanage [trailer]) and Javier Ruiz Caldera (Spanish Movie [trailer]).
