A golpe de tacón tells the story of Anita Sirgo and Tina Pérez, women who fought for their rights and those of their families during the miners strikes in Asturias, Spain in the 1960s. It is a tribute to their strength, dignity and defiance of the Francoist dictatorship. Produced by 'Por Tantas Cosas' and directed by Amanda Castro, this short film has obtained numerous awards, both nationally and internationally, including the Special Merit Award in the San Diego Indie Fest, the Salvador Allende Centenary Mention in the Social Film and Human Rights Festival in Valparaiso (Chile), and the Best Actress Award to Cristina Marcos (Anita Sirgo) in the 1st International Film Festival of Valle del Bravo (México) and in the Olavarria Short Film Festival (Argentina).

 

Born in Asturias, Amanda Castro is currently Head of Production of Asturias TV News. She has a degree in Information and Documentation from Madrid's Complutense University and is completing her doctoral thesis in Women's Studies at the University of Oviedo. She is the director of Tierra de guerrilleros [Guerrilla Territory] and the author of La representación de la mujer en el cine español de la Transición (1973-1982) [Women's Representation in Spanish Cinema during the Transition (1973-1982)].
