A dream from paper to screen
The jump to the vignettes of the original comic by Sara Varon to the moving image, by the hand of an acclaimed filmmaker such as Pablo Berger, a first-timer in the field of animation, raise the interest of a project like Robot Dreams, a sister film on a spiritual level of the multi-awarded Blancanieves, by the same director. The conversation about the work process with its maximum responsible, a creator of undoubted personality, Sara Varon, the same author of the comic and it’s art director, Jose Luís Ágreda, of recognized trajectory in the world of comics, points out the cross-fertilization and offers an incredible world of possibilities.
