This year’s Spanish Berlinale Co-Pro Market contender is also presented by producers María Zamora (Avalon P.C.) and Daniel Froiz (Matriuska Producciones). After a great debut with ‘Frágil Equilibrio’ (2016), which premiered at IDFA and won the Goya for Best Documentary, Guillermo García López re-visits Berlinale with ‘Ciudad sin Sueño’ joined by his producer Lina Badenes (Turanga Films), together they will be presenting the first out of two Spanish entries in the 2021 Talent Project Market. The second one, ‘Los Tortuga’, is also a second feature by Belén Funes following on her debut film ‘The Thief’s Daughter’, San Sebastian International Competition 2019 selection.
