El idioma de la ruina

Mentoring projects


El idioma de la ruina explores the creative process employed by actor Enrique Bustos, from La Zarandas theatre company, to develop a new character, paralleling the process of creating the film itself and setting up a game of mirrors and insightful dialogues between actor and director—a couple in real life—on the intangible endeavour of creating something out of nothing.


Ana Rodríguez León (Barcelona, 1981) studied filmmaking at ESCAC and moved to Madrid in 2006, where she worked as a screenwriter, video editor and filmmaker. She began making shorts and documentaries as a means of exploring the nature of images and the play of mirrors in the notion of identity. She returned to Barcelona in 2018. This is her debut feature.
