Norbert Llaràs i Carles
Norbert Llaràs, after graduating in Law, quit his job in a bank to become producer and partner in the production company Zip Films, where he produced films like “Alpha” (2012), “Memories of My Sad Whores “(2011), ”Fake Orgasm“ (2009), ”Dark Buenos Aires“ (2008), ”My Way“ (2007), ”The Anarchist’s Wife“ (2007), “The timecrimes” (2007) or “El taxista full“ (2006), TV movies as “Blank Bullets” (2010), “Implosion” (2010) or “El partit” (2006) and documentaries like “The Losers” (2007) or “Cuba sings to Serrat” (2005). Almost thirty productions present at festivals such as San Sebastian, Sitges, Locarno, Munich or Sundance and many of them produced along with the United States, Argentina, Uruguay, Germany, Denmark and Italy.
Proud of his small country, Catalonia, Norbert considers Barcelona an open and seductive city – a stamp he wishes to impress on Alhena Production: a young, courageous and creative company. As a film producer, Norbert tries to find the balance between art and finances, dishing out resources and ideas accordingly.
Self-taught and cinephile since always, he started working making reports for local televisions and companies. A few years later he joined the staff of the prestigious distributor Lauren Films, his great learning film industry. At Lauren he had a multitask role, from media to advertising and marketing.
When the distributor closed its doors, Andreu began a journey of collaborations with different producers, until he started working for Alhena up to mid-2016, where he is responsible for coordinating the production of their projects, since the shooting until the premiere.
