Director’s Bio

Albert Serra is a catalan artist and filmmaker born in 1975 in Spain. He is well known for his work for theater and cinema, as a writer, director and producer. European myths, history and literature are recurrent themes in his works. He has been diligent in filmmaking since 2004 and made award-winning movies, such as Honour of the Knights (2007), The Death of Louis XIV (2016), Story of My Death (2013), which won the Golden Leopard, the main prize of Locarno Film Festival, and Freedom (2016) which got the special jury award in Cannes 2019. Serra is a fun and mysterious eccentric, who has raised many people’s attention with his remarks, such as when he half jokingly states that actors are unintelligent and weak. As a matter of fact, he employs amateur actors whenever possible. His films, however, don’t depict strong opinions or messages – but are on the other hand characterized by their slow artistic rhythm without a plot. In his new film, Pacifiction, we see a sign of a turning point in his career and also in the art of cinema. His unique approach now represents a storyline and a dangerous atmosphere in this quiet and artistic thriller
