Mía and Moi.
After losing their mother, Mía and Moi take refuge in a ramshackle family home, in the countryside, in the middle of nowhere. With them, Biel, Moi’s boyfriend.
Together the three of them try to rest and heal the wounds. Especially in the case of Moi, who is recovering from a severe nervous breakdown. These are days of recovering family memories, some of them painful, of meeting again, of living without haste. The arrival of Mikel, Mía’s boyfriend, will alter the coexistence and disturb each of the inhabitants of the house in different ways. The tension grows until it explodes in an act of violence with irreversible consequences.
Mía and Moi is the first feature film written and directed by Borja de la Vega, an actor’s representative, since 2013, at Kuranda, an agency that he has run for 4 years together with its founder Katrina Bayonas.
In his work as an agent, what motivates him the most is the close relationship with those represented, the day-to-day work with them, planning and developing their professional careers as a team. Before turning to acting, he worked for almost 10 years in the film distribution industry, specifically in the marketing departments of Fox and Universal.
In his role as creator, he was a scriptwriter and director, together with Carlos del Hoyo, of the webseries Diarios de la Webcam, acquired by Antena3 and broadcasted on television on the Neox channel. The series had two seasons and a total of 29 episodes. His next project, already solo as a scriptwriter and director, was another web series, 60m2, a naturalistic drama about a complicated love triangle: a personal and intimate project, more in line with the type of cinema that inspires him. Launched independently on YouTube, its 12 chapters accumulate more than 300,000 views. In 2017, he made his debut as an author and theatre director with the play Amor de Niños, performed at the Intemperie Teatro in Madrid and starring Andrea Guasch and Joe Manjón.
