Amanda Lago

They tell that Amanda’s mother was in a train to Santiago de Compostela when she went into labour and that she had time to pass an exam and come back to her hometown before going to the hospital. She grew in Rias Baixas, her favorite TV show was Pipi Langstrump and she spent summer days loitering in the streets. Nowadays, she enjoys having her house full of Renaissance books and objects and her favorite dish is octopus. Her grandmother taught her to love the music and blew her scalded hand for a whole night (after Amanda had an accident frying an egg). Her first job as a filmmaker was a medium-length film which last scene could never be shot and has a fetish for hands and necks. She feels a spiritual connection with wolves (and refuses to lose her instinct) and likes garlic a lot.
