Academy Award–winning filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar (b. 1949), one of the most daring and influential writer-directors of our time, transformed Spanish cinema with his 21 feature films to date. He directed the first in 1980, during La Movida Madrileña (The Madrid Scene), a countercultural movement that emerged as Spain transitioned from a repressive military dictatorship to democracy. Pushing the boundaries of representation, he centers dynamic female and LGBTQ+ characters and stories that express a fuller spectrum of the human condition. At times outlandish and provocative, Almodóvar’s films—marked by exquisite performances, lush production design, and moving scores—are also deeply humanistic and compassionate.
