Director’s Bio

Pedro Almodóvar was born in La Mancha, along with the decade of the 50s. It was the era of the Cold War, the mambo, the Big Bands, Balenciaga, the Korean War, the Hungary uprising, Stalin’s death, etc. But none of these events had the slightest effect in Calzada de Calatrava, the village where he was born. Almodóvar took a good look at his surroundings and didn’t like what he saw. He felt like an astronaut at King Arthur’s Court. He had absolutely no inclination toward rural life, but had to wait sixteen years before he could make a change of scenery and finally settle in Madrid.
