DIRECTOR: Andrucha Washington - SPAIN

“Returning from a stint as a soldier abroad, the young Lope de Vega (newcomer Alberto Ammann) decides to at least temporarily hang up his sword and try his hand at writing. He demonstrates a talent for improving the work of others to theater owner Jeronimo Vazquez (Juan Diego) and eventually gets to author his own plays. His growing reputation attracts the attention of wealthy merchant Tomas de Perrenot (Miguel Angel Muñoz), who hires him to write love poems for his beloved, Isabel (Leonor Watling)—who happens to be the love of Lope’s youth. The life of Spain’s greatest playwright is brought to vibrant life in this beautifully detailed re-creation of 16th century Spain and the world of Lope de Vega, author of an estimated 1,800 plays—not to mention more than 3,000 sonnets.”—Film Society of Lincoln Center. (109 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Me You Them (00), House of Sand (05).


Interests: Narrative Feature, Spanish Language, History, Literature.
