Támara Aalto (b. Spain), studied Environmental Sciences and afterwards decided to make a change getting into the Art School of Zaragoza studying Illustration. Always curious about her unknown Nordic roots, she came to Finland with the plan of staying only for 2 months to find some clues; she ended up staying longer to explore and re-discover her main passion: Cinema. Recently she has started to write and direct her own stories and participating in indie short films in different tasks. She is interested in topics such as identity, roots, minorities, breaking stereotypes and feminism. Cinema is for her a machine of empathy to connect people with.
