Sophia Mocorrea grew up between Germany and Argentina. Dealing with her two nationalities and by that two identities in her works she questions and deconstructs the structures in which young people are socialised within and between cultures. Her award-winning short film Matadoras was screened at numerous festivals, such as Uppsala and Vienna Shorts, and was shortlisted at Cannes Critics’ Week. Her graduation film El Secuestro de la Novia (The Kidnapping of the Bride, 30 min.), won the Best International Short Film Award at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, and received an honourable mention at the 73rd Berlinale, and screened at the New Directors/New Films Festival. She is currently developing her first feature film Marriage by Abduction, which won the Les Arcs Talent Village Award and was invited to the Toronto Film Festival.
