Lucía G. Romero

Lucía (1999) had an interest in telling stories from an early age. Encouraged by her mother, a literature teacher, and her father, a television editor, Lucía began studying cinematography at the ESCAC from which she graduated in 2023. In it she wrote and directed several fiction short films, as well as a documentary that won in the DOC-U section of DocsBarcelona in 2019. With Cura Sana she culminates her learning at school by telling an autobiographical story linked to his Cuban roots and full of political demands.
