Vientos de primavera, screening at the 56th Karlovy Vary Film Festival in the Future Frames section is director’s Carmen Pedrero’s letter to her teen self back in the past. The young director confirms that She wanted to direct a personal story, about an experience she personally made in the past, in her teenage years. What about the condition of women in cinema? A change is going on, Pedrero hopes. 10 years ago it was very difficult to find women directors to relate with and look up to, now there are many examples. Among those, Carla Simon, who recently won the Berlinale with Alcarràs.
