Laura Àlvarez Soler
After graduating in journalism, Álvarez began her career in media twelve year ago. During that time she has held many roles, although mostly focused on the creation of TV content. Her evolution as a journalist and a content developer has always been linked to an interest in telling relevant stories linked to social rights, as well as an urge to go beyond conventional TV limits. This experience, together with a self-taught vocation and a passion for auteur film, have made Álvarez develop as a producer and director that sees media as a fundamental tool for social change. The film City for Sale (Bausan Films, 2018) is her first feature documentary. It premiered at the Málaga Festival (2019) and at DocsBarcelona (2019).
