Meet Clara Lezama, director of ‘Emma’

Meet Clara Lezama, a 23 year old filmmaker from Montevideo, Uruguay. Her short, Emma, won best #shortfilm at both FIEC and the Festival Piriápolis de Película.

Emma is a #suspense thriller about a woman (Chiara Hourcade) who while escaping something, winds up at a hotel. Once there, everything she sees only serves to heighten her paranoia. It’s a#davidlynch meets #hitchcock meets#guillermodeltoro effort resulting in claustrophobic #masterpiece.

There are very few filmmakers who could have pulled off a film like this- much less at 21 on a 4 day shoot without government funding.
