Albert Serra (Spain)

Born in Spain in 1975, Albert Serra studied literature and art history at Barcelona University. In 2006 he wrote, directed and produced his first feature film, Honor of the Knights, followed by Birdsong (2008); both were selected for the Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes. In 2010 he made Els noms de Crist before directing, a year later, El Senyor ha fet en mi meravelles for the exhibition Correspondencias at Barcelona. These two films were screened at Locarno in the Fuori concorso section in 2011. That same year he was also one of sixty filmmakers who contributed to 60 Seconds of Solitude in Year Zero, a series of short one-minute films about the death of cinema.
