María Molina Peiró is a Spanish filmmaker and audiovisual artist, with a background in fine arts. She works in an open format, mixing film, experimental animation and new media. Her films and installations often unfold layered realities that connect humans, technology and nature. She is particularly interested in memory systems (from geology to digital memory) and the relation between cinema and science. Her current research focuses on humanity’s constant struggle with its temporal and spatial limitations, and how this struggle has driven civilisation and technology to change our relation with nature, time and our understanding of life itself.
She has presented her work in film festivals and exhibitions internationally: International Film Festival Rotterdam IFFR, Rencontres Internationales, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, International Film Festival Oberhausen, Louvre Museum, EYE Film Museum, ISEA Korea, Indie Lisboa International Film Festival, London Science Museum, MACBA, VIS Vienna Shorts, Hong-Gah Museum (Taipei), MATADERO (Madrid), Taiwan Video Art Biennale or Goshorts, amongst many others.
María holds a BA from University of the Arts, Sevilla and graduated Cum Laude from the Master of Film at the Netherlands Film Academy in Amsterdam, where she also won the AHK Award for best Master project.
