The film ‘Nación’, by Margarita Ledo Andión, distinguished by the ICAA for promoting gender equality

15/01/2021

The Institute of Cinematography and Audiovisual Arts (ICAA) recognizes  Margarita Ledo Andión‘s latest film as “Especially recommended for the promotion of gender equality.” The entity, dependent on the Ministry of Culture and Sports, grants this distinction to films that promote the elimination of prejudices, stereotyped images, and roles based on sex, favor the use of non-sexist languages, promote the rejection of all types of violence and they represent equally the capacity of women in clearly masculinized sectors.

Nación, a non-fiction feature film produced by Nós Produtora Cinematográfica Galega, vindicates the female labor struggle through the experiences of the workers of the A Pontesa (Pontevedra) ceramic factory throughout the 1950s. Premiered at the Seville European Film Festival in November, the film also participated in Festival  Cineuropa in Santiago de Compostela and in the Márgenes-Festival de Cine Independiente de Madrid and is now preparing its premiere in commercial theaters. The Ministry’s recognition of the work of this filmmaker and researcher at the USC thus joins other recent awards, such as the Best Director Award from the SEFF and the Cineuropa festival award for her entire career.
