When looking at Pedro Almodóvar’s filmography, it becomes evident that women are everywhere. Indeed, his work revolves around them. To compile a portrait of Almodóvar and evoke the emotional power of his films, filmmaker Sergio Mondelo spoke with these Spanish divas. Each talks about the director in her own way, about the man as much as about his films, shedding light on his personality. Almodóvar grew up in Franco’s Spain, and his artistic vision developed in modern, democratic Spain at the time of La Movida. These women are the ideal observers of a cinematic career that, from La Mancha to Hollywood, has changed the image of Spain in the world.
Sergio G. Mondelo began his career as a journalist for Libération before joining Canal+ in 1998. He co-wrote three thrillers for M6, collaborated on the historical documentary series L'Ombre d'un doute (2011-2015) broadcast by France 3, as well as several other documentary series, including Toutes les télés du monde for ARTE (2005-2011) and Femmes accusées for the Planète network (2013). He has also written a children’s novel entitled La guerre des moutons (2015).
