“Hollywood Talkies” in Venice

I’m glad to let you know that a documentary I was involved in, Hollywood Talkies, was presented at the 68th Venice Film Festival, Orizzonti section. I was involved at a very early stage of the project, when I was doing my masters degree in Barcelona, back in 2006-2007; I worked as a documentalist researcher. It’s a experimental documentary about the Spanish actors that went to Hollywood to participate in the first talkies in the 1930′s. I haven’t seen the final version yet; I’m looking forward to it!
