Félix Fernández de Castro on Maria And I

At the 54th BFI London Film Festival filmmakers' tea we had the opportunity to speak to Félix Fernández de Castro, director of Maria and I, a beautiful love story between an autistic girl and her father based on the comic strip by Miguel Gallardo. Félix Fernández de Castro, on first reading Miguel Gallardo's comic strip, was surprised and inspired by the humour and positivity reflected in the story to the extent that he felt compelled to make a film about it.
