The Goya Awards of the Spanish Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have awarded this year’s Best Documentary Short Film to the second work by graduate Laura Ferrés, Los desheredados.

Los Desheredados is a portrait of the director’s father facing the end of the family business. Pere Ferrés is 53 years old and runs a coach company. The scarcity of income forces him to organise stag parties where the clients often wreck the vehicle, but he is not prepared to lose his dignity.

The short film culminated this Saturday a career full of awards and recognitions, including the Leica Award for Best Discovery at the Critics’ Week of the Cannes Film Festival (2017), the nomination at the EFA or the Gaudí Award it won just a week ago.

Directed and written by Laura Ferrés, it features Agnés Piqué as director of cinematography and David Tejedor as production director, both ESCAC graduates. Laura Ferrés’ first work, A Perro Flaco, was produced by Escac Films.

In this edition of the Goya Awards there were two other graduates nominated, Ana Pfaff and David Gallart, both in the Editing category, which finally went to Laurent Dufreche and Raúl López for Handía.

Master of Directing alumnus Carlos Solano was nominated in the Best Fiction Short Film category for Extraños en la carretera. The award went to Madre by Rodrigo Sorogoyen.

ESCAC graduates have so far obtained more than 40 nominations in the technical categories and, with this year’s, 20 Goya Awards, with special mention for the three obtained in the new director category (J.A. Bayona in 2007, Mar Coll in 2009 and Kike Maíllo in 2011). On RTVE this week they have talked about ESCAC as a quarry of film professionals in our country, here you can see the report.
