Pedro Almodóvar

Born in Spain in Calzada de Calatrava in 1951, director, screenwriter and producer Pedro Almodóvar is one of the most well-known filmmakers in his own country and in the rest of the world. Interested in film and theater from an early age, in 1986 with his brother Augustín he co-founded the production company El Deseo, which produced his early films and the work of other Spanish filmmakers. In 1978 he made his directorial debut with Folle... folle... fólleme Tim! This was followed by numerous other films, including Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! (1990) and High Heels (1991), whose cast included Victoria Abril. In 1999 he made All About My Mother, which won him the Best Director Award at the Cannes Festival that same year, as well as the Best Foreign Film Oscar in 2000. In 2003 he won the Best Original Screenplay Oscar for Talk to Her. Almodóvar’s subsequent credits include several major successes, including Bad Education (2004), Volver (2006) and Broken Embraces (2009), the first of which starred Gael García Bernal and the other two Penélope Cruz.
