Ferran Herranz: "it is very strange for a film from the independent film circuit which begins in Cannes to also end up with the American Academy awards."

This month we interview Ferran Herranz, co-founder of the distributor La Aventura Audiovisual, responsible for us being able to see Parasite by Bong Joon-lo, the big winner at the Cannes festival and at the Hollywood Oscars. We talk with him about the film’s success but also about the work of a distributor. Note: this interview was conducted before the State of Emergency came into force because of Covid-19, and therefore some questions refer to the previous situation.
