MADRID.- Filmmaker and until now president of the Academy of Arts and Cinema Sciences, Ángeles González-Sinde, has been named Minister of Culture, substituting César Antonio Molina, by the president of the government, José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.

Ángeles González-Sinde has won two Goya Prizes, one for the script for the film by Ricardo Franco "La buena estrella" (1997) and, the other, for her film "La suerte dormida" (2003), in which she debuted as director.

She was born in 1965 in Madrid and is the daughter of screenwriter and producer José María González-Sinde, the first president of the Spanish Academy of Cinema (1985-1988) and a promoter of the Goya Prize. She majored in Philosophy and, before dedicating her professional career to screenwriting, she worked as a translator, concert promoter for a record company and collaborated at "Cosmopolitan".

In 1991 she studied a master´s degree in screenwriting under her teacher and film director José Luis Borau, at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. She started her professional career writing for television and then she polished her writing skills in the United States.

Back in Spain, she introduced herself into cinema as the author of the script of Ricardo Franco´s "La buena estrella" (1997), which obtained a Goya, and then she continued with the dialogues for films such as "Lágrimas negras" (1998), by the same director, "Segunda piel" (2000) by Gerardo Vera; "Heroína" (2004) by Gerardo Herrero and "La vida que te espera" (2004), by Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón.

Angeles González-Sinde, who as a screenwriter has just presented "Mentiras y gordas", by Menkes y Albacete, debuted as director with the film "La suerte dormida" (2003), which won a Goya for new director and the Premio del Círculo de Escritores Cinematográficos for best supporting actor for Pepe Soriano.

After this she made a film for television stations Canal Sur and TV-3 ¿Y a mí quién me cuida? (2007) and her second film as director, "Una palabra tuya" (2008), adapted from the book with the same name by Malena Alterio and Esperanza Pedreño. She was one of 31 directors who shot the documentary "Madrid 11 M-Todos íbamos en ese tren" (2005), formed by short reels of the drama that the victims lived through in the terrorist attacks in Madrid.
