Carnival in Barcelona. The Dominican troupe is the most popular at the most attended parade in the city, and for the first time this year, they are parading with a float. Ruth, the owner of a Latin hairdresser, is sponsoring the float so that she can put her daughter Rihanna in it. Rihanna usually dresses like a “machito” and Ruth wants everyone to see her like a princess for once. But the tutu and tiara are a shaming too unbearable for the until then submissive Rihanna.
Venezuela. Born into a family of producers, Andrea began her training on a set at 15. She studied filmmaking in Chile and later opened her first production company in Caracas. Her debut feature, Nena, Saludame al Diego, became a blockbuster.
In 2014, Andrea settled in Spain. She was given the opportunity to work in an independent adult film, as a producer for Swedish director Erika Lust. It was the opportunity to professionally explore something that she had always interested in on a personal level: the taboos around something as paradoxically omnipresent as sexuality.
In 2016, Andrea founded Amor y Lujo together with the producer and scriptwriter Almudena Monzú. They are dedicated to the production of films with an authorial and international scent, often linked to Latin America, that explore new narratives by mixing and revisiting cinematographic genres, and that investigate in the field of contemporary erotic narrative and imaginary.
Andrea is alumnus of Berlinale Talents, Rotterdam Lab and EAVE Puentes.
