La maniobra de Heimlich is a faux documentary built around Alex Pareja, a writer who chalked up a huge success with his first novel, inspired by the absurd death of an ex-girlfriend. 10 years later, Alex receives a proposal to adapt his book for film. A low cost comedy about the ups and downs of creation and a “tender hearted” satire of Barcelona’s cool milieus.
Director of music video and documentaries for television, in 2007 he made his first short, Colgados, selected at the Sitges, Fantasporto and Lund festivals, among others. La maniobra de Heimlich is his debut feature film.
