She’s worked with some of the most recognized Spanish directors such as Pedro Almodóvar (All About My Mother), Isabel Coixet (Yesterday Never Ends), Fernando León de Aranoa (Princesses), Cesc Gay (A Gun in Each Hand), Paco León (Kiki, Love to Love) or Icíar Bollaín (Take My Eyes; Rosa’s Wedding, etc).

This year Can – dela Peña will join us during the opening of the festival to present Icíar Bollaín’s film Rosa’s Wedding, but her presence on screen will be a constant, with her participation in Queer You Are (Maricón Perdido) by Bob Pop. Her role in the TV series is part of this year’s official poster!
