EL AUTOR

Feature Film-2017
Directed by Manuel Martín Cuenca

Álvaro wants to be a writer, but everything he writes is false, pretentious, tasteless. He works as a scribe in a notary of Seville and his life is gray, colored only by his dreams. His wife, Amanda, is the opposite. He’s always had his feet on the ground and never dreamed of being a writer. However, she is the one who gets to write and gets a best-seller. Ironies of life.

Separation is inevitable. And at that moment, Álvaro decides to face his dream: to write a great novel. But he is incapable; He has no talent, no imagination. Guided by John, his writing teacher, he delves into the foundations of the novel, until one day he discovers that fiction is written with reality.
