In the mind of

Abril Zamora

it was not to build a generational portrait.

And just that is

Todo lo otro

, his series for HBO Max, the image of a generation: the one that arrives in Madrid in their twenties with the idea of ​​eating life and ends up after 30 devoured by a frenzied pace, frustrated by expectations unfulfilled and still

half happy clinging to an elusive idea of ​​youth

.

. Have they deceived us with what our life was going to be? They have deceived us because they have forced us to compare ourselves with previous generations, with our parents, because at our age they had a flat and children. I do not know anyone in whom you can feel reflected with that, it was a fraud. The circle of work to live to work burns you so much that you lose interest, you feel empty, you question everything and it is frustrating, the feeling is that people get frustrated every time before. And unfortunately it is justified, it is not good to wallow in victimhood and frustration, but it is inevitable because things are not getting easy for us. In the series it is said that they should teach us at school what anxiety is and manage it because we are all going to go through there.But there is still a lot of taboo in everything that has to do with the mind and health. Today's adolescents have taken something away from that taboo, right? There is a lot of talk about it, but there is some opportunism because there is a lot of talk about therapy and almost no one uses it. We are individualists, we try to solve everything on our own, but little by little the stigma of going to therapy because you're fucking crazy disappears. In fact, in your series it is said that we have to allow ourselves to be bad more often. We have to allow ourselves to be bad to listen to ourselves. and solve problems. If we hide the shit under the carpet, it will explode in our faces, better to look in the mirror and in the face. To go through that, you have to allow yourself to be bad alone and in front of people, who are always embarrassed to see people affected because we are unable to resolve conflicts.Today's teenagers have taken away that taboo something, haven't they?

Those problems are what Abril Zamora has placed in the universe created by her and starred with her friends. Because that is Everything else, your life. "I always try to say no because I did not realize that it was so autobiographical. But it is true that there are many parallels with my life and all my friends are there, she is a

Martian

and she gives a lot of modesty. I am afraid of feeling so exposed, I prefer to play to ambiguity and hide myself in a character. "

And, like a stealthy protagonist,

transsexuality is permeating every story of this Catalan, who in 2017 began her transition

. "In my life it is very normalized, I did not want to emphasize it, but it is necessary to show it. Only that a trans girl is integrated into her group of friends is already very important because it has gotten into our heads that we have to reject what is different."

She always says that she doesn't want to just talk about being trans, but is it still important that she be? It is important that the creator is trans and that it is talked about. Hopefully it won't be mentioned, but not doing it today would be science fiction. It is also true that transsexuality is associated a lot with sleaze and prostitution, but it is very difficult to be hired in a greengrocer or in the subway because we do not have the same opportunities and there is still a lot of prejudice. That is why I think it is cool that it is made visible that I am a trans director because I can encourage many girls to drive a taxi or be an actress. In fact, when she had to change her ID, she had to present a psychiatric test. And I will confess that it was false. It slipped perfectly and I felt very proud to be able to fight the State. I'm not going to pay for therapy without needing it,I may need it for other things but not for the fact of being trans, especially because I have never been so happy since I showed myself to the world as I am. Are we taking steps forward in these aspects? Things have changed, I had to show a certificate doctor that he was taking hormones. What if I don't want to take them? Does that make me less of a woman? You can be a woman and have a penis, you don't need a vagina. These previously very uncomfortable concepts are being taught a lot. I do not know who thinks that transsexuality is going to be used without being it to have benefits. Who was going to choose the complicated path? We are on the right track even though there are still reports of beatings and deaths. Are there more beatings or have we started to report them more? They have grown because there are far-right parties with a voice that make people come out of the cave.Those opinions that violate human rights or people should not be given credibility, but it never ceases to surprise me that they go to the individual. Who can be bothered by what you do in your bed or your gender identity? Are you so bored? Get in your business and let others be happy.

That is why

she tries to make her transsexuality visible in each public act, in each of her own work.

"If they take me to a place without mentioning that I am trans, everything is more normalized, but it is necessary that I be seen in places and, although I am very lazy, I go for that."

In your profession, has your transsexuality harmed you? My case cannot be used as a reference because there is still a lot of visibility to give us, but I always noticed that being trans opened a door for me because certain companies want to have a halo of visibility and I tried to take advantage of it rather than see it as a drag. It's affirmative action that sometimes gives up the ass but sometimes it's cool. If you take me to a place just because I'm trans, I'm going to take advantage of it to vindicate it because it's my responsibility. And with this brilliant career, now what? Well, as far as they leave me, I'm not ambitious at all, I don't have great job aspirations. I really enjoy here in Madrid with the same people with whom I did alternative theaters and we charged at the box office. My only goal is to staypay the mortgage and go out to dinner with my friends so that tomorrow I don't have to have drinks in a bar.

Come on, continue living in

Everything else
