FLORA emerges as one of the final projects of ESCAC's Master's Degree in Direction (Escuela Superior de Cine y Audiovisuales de Catalunya).
This drama project was chosen by the ESCAC Films' jury and will be filmed in october 2018.
We want to portray one day in Carla's life and show all the effort this character has to do in order to be with her six years old daughter, Flora.
Carla is very passionate for what she does, she works in an ambulance during the mornings as a paramedic and she does her shifts in the hospital on the afternoons.
Mónica, her ex wife, has lived with Flora in a different city for a few years now. This is why Carla has to travel in the weekends to visit her daughter.
We want to show this real, strong and independent woman as she is. A person who works all day, that she is not perfect, that she gets tired like everyone else and keeps on going forward.
We want to portray a protagonist that tells a story that it is not about her sexuality, but represents many familys that go throught the same hard time when it comes to divorce and children's custody.
FLORA is about effort and sacrifice.
We have an international team!
Some of our crew members are form Spain, Perú and Argentina.
Many of us have worked together in multiple projects before.
We have people from ESCAC university and professionals from outside the school working for this project.
