Natalia Mateo

Born 1975, Cuenca, Spain. Natalia Mateo discovered direction and writing through interpretation. Almost without realizing it, character after character and job after job as an actress, she felt she also needed to tell her own stories. Quite naturally, she moved from theater to cinema and is currently preparing her first feature length film after three short films that received appraise from both critics and audiences.
