Ángeles González-Sinde

Ángeles González-Sinde Reig (Madrid, 1965), nicknamed Sinde, is a Spanish scriptwriter, film director and the current Culture Minister of Spain[1] .

González-Sinde studied Classics at the Complutense University of Madrid and did a Masters in Cinema Scriptwriting at the AFI Conservatory in Los Angeles.

She was president of AACCE ( Academia de las Artes y las Ciencias Cinematográficas de España, Spanish Academy of Arts and Cinematographic Sciences) since 2006 until April 2009, when she was appointed Minister of Culture. Her appointment was received with anger and rejection by the Spanish Internet Community, due to the opposition of González-Sinde to P2P file sharing[2].

She is the daughter of the academy's founder, José María González-Sinde, Sr. Her brother, José María González-Sinde, Jr., is also involved in the film industry[3].



As a scriptwriter

As a director



On April 2009, Ángeles González-Sinde was appointed Culture Minister. This sparked a movement against her from the Spanish internet users community, represented by the Asociacion de Internautas (Internauts Association). Their statement was that she is unable to fulfill correctly the needs and obligations of her position, because of a COI, given that she has personal ties with businesses involved in the film industry and, as such, she will not be impartial. Moreover, Spanish law 5/2006 of April 10, 2006 regulates COI among high-ranking positions in the Spanish government.
