Pablo Berger op IFFR
Pablo BERGER (1963, Spain) moved from his home town of Bilbao to New York after the Basque government had noticed his short cult film Mama (1988) and gave him a study grant. He later himself became a teacher at several film academies. He only made his feature debut in 2003. But Torremolinos 73, about an encyclopaedia salesman who turns into a pornographer, was immediately the film of the year in Spain and also had international success. Blancanieves is his second feature.
