Laura Ferrés and Xavier Marrades at the New York Film Festival

The New York Film Festival will screen two non-fiction shorts by the Catalan directors Laura Ferrés and Xavier Marrades, who will present Los desheredados  and Cucli, respectively.  

Los Desheredados (The Disinherited), which the director describes as a hybrid between fiction and documentary, premiered at Semaine de la Critique - Cannes 2017, winning the Leica Cine Discovery Prize for Best Short Film. Los Desheredados was alzo prized with Best European Short at the Curtas Vila do Conde Film Festival and was nominated for the European Film Awards.

In July, CUCLI, a documentary short film directed by Xavier Marrades about a widowed truck driver who finds companionship through a peculiar relationship with his pet dove, was featured at AFI Docs in Washington, D.C. Cucli won Best Short Film at FICCI 2017 (Festival Internacional de Cine de Cargatena de Indias) and Best Documentary and Best Opera Prima at HIFF 2017 (Huesca International Film Festival.)

The Barcelona-born filmmaker Xavier Marrades graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York and focuses on documentary and experimental filmmaking.

Laura Ferrés studied film direction at ESCAC (Spain), where she directed A Perro Flaco as her final project, which was then selected by 60 festivals worldwide, including 204 SEMINCI in Spain and the 2015 Montreal World Film Festival.
