Él pone la música, nosotros bailamos tells the story of a heist carried out by a family of smalltime criminals and their circle of endearing crooks. A tip-off takes them all the way to Galicia in pursuit of their juiciest target so far: a large shipment of luxurious French antiques.

Manuela Lorente (Madrid, 1991) graduated in Architecture and went on to study an International Master’s Degree in Photography and Project Management at Efti. She is devoted to storytelling by means of documentary photography. Her stories combine reality and fiction against the backdrop of Spanish popular culture, personal relationships and the tradition and identity of the city of Madrid. It is the photographs that subsequently inspire the stories, with eccentricity and picaresque as common threads.
