Biography

VIRGINIA GARCÍA DEL PINO(Barcelona, 1966).
Film director and project director of on the UAB Documentary Master’s Course. After graduating in Fine Arts, her production as a video artist brings her to the documentary genre. Her films, of resounding formal simplicity, arise from an attempt to understand human behaviour and in doing so, her films float between optimism and a disturbingly tragic background. In 2008, she won several awards for What You Say I Am, the documentary which opened the doors to numerous international film festivals, although her short films still participate in contemporary art exhibitions. With My Sister and I (2009), she participated in Features festivals like Punto de Vista and Fid Marseille. Her latest production, The Jury, is her first full-length film.
