General Subtitling Translation

A Project Worth a Goya!

Huge congratulations to the film Mientras seas tú, el aquí y ahora de Carme Elías (While You’re Still You – Carme Elías: Here and Now) for winning “Best Documentary” at Spain’s Goya Film Awards!

I was thrilled to be involved with this production, in conjunction with Interpunct Translations, creating the English subtitles for the international version.

Directed by the actress’s friend, Venezuelan director Claudia Pinto Emperador, this film narrates the true, harrowing journey of actress Carme Elías’ daily losing battle against Alzheimer’s, from the moment when the early signs first became apparent while Pinto and Elías were filming La distancia más larga (The Longest Distance), through tracking the disease’s unstoppable advance until the moment that Elías decides to go public with her story.

It premiered in the “Made in Spain” section at the San Sebastian International Film Festival in 2023, where it earned a Special Jury Mention, winning the Dunia Ayaso Prize. Later that year, the film won “Best Documentary” at Catalonia’s Gaudí Awards.

Congratulations, actress Carme Elías and director Claudia Pinto Emperador!
