  1. Nina Rosenblum recomended your film festival to us as she thought our film had the right profile for Asolo.

    The film LA MIRADA DE OUKA LEELE is about the spanish international photographer and artist Ouka Leele.

    Ouka Leele had the challenge of painting nearly three hundred square metre mural in the province of Murcia. This event prompted the inspiration of the film and provides the back drop to the work of the artist. Ouka Leele formed an important part of the cultural movent in Madrid called “La Movida “ . She is also well know for her black and white photographs which she carefully paints by hand . She has been one of the first women to recieve a commision by the Prado Museum.

    If you would like to see the trailer.


    The film was nominated this year for a Spanish Film Acadamy Award and wone the Spanish film Critics award as Best Documenatry Film.

    If you are interested in our film, please could you send me an entry form as I was unable to download it.

    Best wishes

    Sheridan and Rafael Gordon
