Pedro Almodóvar. This director’s style infused with his love of Spain, women and storytelling compelled me to contact him. How? Going through a messy desk drawer, I found Prudencia’s address in Cáceres. Wasn’t Almodóvar from there? [No, but…] Prudencia has been a faithful friend since our student days in 1980, but we seldom communicate and only by e-mail. There is a natural ease that transcends shared language even after 25 years. Eventually she answered me vaguely about someone in Pedro’s family being from a nearby village, and perhaps her mother used to know this relative. In other words, no six degrees of separation, nada, no connection. How to get to Pedro and get him to look at my tale in an innovative format that paid homage to him?!
