Pedro ALMODÓVAR
Biography

Pedro Almodóvar was born in the heart of La Mancha in the 50s. At seventeen, he moved to Madrid with a very specific project in mind: to study cinema and direct films. He wrote, loved, acted with the mythical independent theatre group Los Goliardos, made short films, collaborated with various underground magazines, wrote stories and was a member of a parodic punk-rock group, Almodóvar and McNamara. His personal explosion coincided with the explosion of the democratic Madrid in the mythic period the world knew as La Movida. In 1980, he opened Pepi, Luci, Bom. In 1986, he founded the production company El Deseo with his brother Agustín Almodóvar. Their first project was Law of Desire. In 1988, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown brought him international recognition. With All About my Mother, he won his first Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, and many other prizes all over the world. Three years later, Talk to Her had the same or better fortune, with an Academy Award for Best Original Script and another bunch of international prizes. In 2004, Bad Education was chosen to open the Festival de Cannes. In 2006, he presents Volver in Competition of the Festival de Cannes, where it got two awards. His latest production to date is Julieta and he is already working on his new script.
