Director Biography:
A graduate from ESCAC and Complutense University of Madrid as well as a graduate in drama from William Layton’s Lab. Ana by Day is her first feature film. Previously she has directed several short films and video-installations. She combines her personal work with her job as a History of Cinema teacher and as Executive Development Assistant for Icónica Productions. 

Director Statement:
In Ana by Day time is stopped in Madrid’s under-world in which Ana will get lost trying to find herself. She will try to run away from this sense of emptiness that some formal women of my generation have. A desire of escaping that also exists as a repressed wish for all the characters of the film. Are we living the lives that we want? Can we escape from ourselves? This is the point of convergence of all my previous films.
