|Isabel Herguera discovered animation via a friend who showed her how to work a Bolex camera and gave her his animation equipment. Since then, she has been imagining stories that take place in different parts of the world, on stages that always fit in her luggage. After years working at various animation studios in L.A., she returned to Spain to run ANIMAC, the International Animation Film Festival of Catalonia from 2002-11, and has been visiting faculty at NID in India, where she escapes to whenever she can to draw in her old notebooks, especially in train stations and bus stops. Currently working with a Spanish Think Tank Company Luvania on a study of contemporary children's animation contents/production, and making a short film with a group of child patients in a clinic in India. Her most recent films La Gallina Ciega (2005) and Ámár (2010) have won awards at several national and international Festivals.|
