Agustín Almodóvar, brother and producer

If Pedro Almodóvar has enjoyed true artistic freedom throughout his career, it has a lot to do with his little brother: Agustín.

In 1986, they founded the production company El Deseo. From then on, all of Almodóvar’s movies were produced independently, as well as a few French co-productions. It is also thanks to this company created with his brother that the filmmaker was able to work in Spain (rather than Hollywood for example) and build a filmography that is oh-so-Spanish, from the language, music and aesthetic choices.

That’s what bros are for!
