Literature and film, and audio-visual creation in general, have always had their points in common. This has become even more so in recent years, and with the rise of new platforms literature is overflowing to other media and finding new publics along the way. While talent scouts and agents specialize in the sale of rights, publishing houses create new departments for television adaptations. At the Hay Festival to talk about adapting books for film and television will be the writer Ray Loriga, author of novels (Rendición; El bebedor de lágrimas; Sábado, domingo), short stories (El hombre que inventó Manhattan) and screenplays for films such as Live Flesh; Theresa, The Body of Christ and Picasso y El Guernica; and the film producer Enrique López Lavigne, who has worked on films including Lo imposible, Un monstruo viene a verme and Mortadelo & Filemon: The Big Adventure
They will talk to the El País cultural journalist Elsa Fernández-Santos.
