DIRECTOR: Nacho Vigalondo - SPAIN

“Nacho Vigalondo’s second feature solidifies his status as one of the most creative and exciting young filmmakers around. His first feature Timecrimes told the story of a man who stumbles into a time machine and the improbable events that followed. Vigalondo’s new film takes a similarly high concept premise but veers into wildly different territory. Extraterrestrial begins by announcing the arrival of massive alien spaceships above modern-day Madrid. But instead of a sci-fi space opera, we are treated to a fanciful romantic comedy. The alien invasion is only the catalyst for human deception, betrayal, and suspicion on an intergalactic scale. Glowing with incredible chemistry between lead actors Julián Villagrán and Michelle Jenner, this may be the best comic romance to feature motherships ever made.”—Lane Kneedler (90 mins.)

Filmography: Timecrimes (07).



Interests: Narrative Feature, Spanish Language.
