Ester Eva Damen is a filmmaker with a background in the visual arts. In addition to the Film Academy (screenplay & direction) she studied writing. She advises artists who want to develop a text about their own work in groups as well as in one to one sessions.

Margalef de Montsant is located south of (airfield) Barcelona at the height of Tarragona (a pleasant train or bus trip along the shore to Reus) and can be reached with a bus from (airfield) Reus, Spain. Contact us before you make a booking.
