María Gisèle Royo & Julia de Castro


Filmmakers Royo and De Castro founded a a feminine, non-exclusive project that understands the need for a structural change considered from a collaborative experience. They approach this challenge through a tribute to the Spanish cult film, Corridas de Alegría (1982). As its director, Gonzalo García Pelayo, expressed, a road movie about “friendship and love failure.” They review these two themes forty years later, immersed in the era of dating apps, eternal youth, and economic insecurity. The context is conformed by a vital period both of us shared: the last years of fertility in a historic moment for the self-sufficient woman.
