Adrián Silvestre is a filmmaker born in 1981 in Valencia, Spain.

They are participative processes, in which dialogue is created, the gender perspective is transversally implemented ant the empowerment of the participants is fostered.

“The Objects of Love is directed with great confidence and assuredness by first time feature director, Adrian Silvestre. The developing story of a woman alone in the city and the key scenes of attraction, lovemaking, bickering, jealousy and deep comradery between the two women are all movingly and convincingly enacted, and the two lead actresses – excellent casting decisions both -share an obvious chemistry. It is refreshing to see a film carried by two strong female leads”.
