Digital Dolls

Cinema Pendent Projects


Bored with life in her conservative rural hometown, an Andalusian teenager goes online to find a version of herself she can identify with. But when her best friend suddenly disappears, she is forced to confront her own reality, connect with those around her and take her first faltering steps along the path of personal growth.


Julia Ponce Díaz was born and raised in a town with six churches and no movie theatre but somehow found herself closer to film than to God. After graduating from the Universidad Carlos III in Madrid, she studied at UCLA, California, and Roosevelt University, Chicago, and won a ”la Caixa” grant to do a Directing MFA at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. Her thesis film, Soredia, won Best Student Short at ShortsFest in San Diego. She currently lives in Los Angeles, where she works on advertising and fiction projects. While finishing postproduction on her latest projects, she is currently developing her first feature script, Digital Dolls, a hybrid coming-of-age film that mixes live-action and animation set in southern Spain.
