El cielo gira / The Sky Turns
Made in Spain

This creative documentary has been one of the biggest hits of the year. Although El cielo gira is the portrait of a village in Soria that is dying, it never indulges in nostalgia about a past world that has vanished. On the contrary, what it shows is the capacity for transformation that a landscape and a society can have and it teaches us is how reality can be turned into something else: a picture, a film, a new life...
Aldealseñor (Soria), 1966. Having directed the short film El viento africano (The African Wind) in 1997, in 1998 she enrolled in a Masters in Documentary and Creation at the Pompeu Fabra University. She edited José Luis Guerin?s feature film En construcción (Goya for Best Documentary and Special Jury Prize at San Sebastian in 2001). As in the case of the former, El cielo gira originated in the above-mentioned MA course at the UPF, with the backing of its director Jordi Balló and the collaboration of several course students.
