“La Libertaria” is a TV series about three women who decide no to be what is expected from them but what they want : a post-teenager daughter who (unlike every millennial) is not a poser, a mother with no maternal instinct and a grandmother who’s tired of looking after the others and wants to grab life by the horns. A story where the shocks between generations, personalities and points of view always have a common shot: these women never hold back. In short, this story is about women who want to be free.
Katia just turned 19 and her world turns upside down when her mother Mati, who never took care of her, comes back to her life willing to stay ¿Where was she? Nobody knows. Mati is a free spirit unable to put down roots. Now, almost 40, she finds out that she has to come back to her mother’s home, Puri, something that will really piss Katia of. Grandma, mother and daughter, each of them with their issues, will have to learn to accept each other the way they are and love each other beyond prejudices.
The aim of this Verkami is to finance the tv pilot of La Libertaria, which is part of our final degree project in the Pompeu Fabra University. At the same time, we’re writing the whole season of the series so we can complete the full series in a (hopefully not too distant) future.
What's the pilot about?
The starting point of the chapter is when Katia bumps into her mother, Mati. Mati will destabilize her family and will turn Katia and Puri’s world upside down.
La Libertaria is a fresh and cheeky comedy with a touch of drama. It’s spontaneous, unique and a little bit “punky” as we want to show things the way they are, without restrictions.

We are students from Audiovisual Communication in Pompeu Fabra University. During this last year we’ve worked very hard to create La Libertaria. Moreover, instead of just being classmates, we’re also very good friends and together we are ‘Las Libertinas’. There’s a little bit of all of us in the series and this is kind of beautiful and pathetic at the same time.
We have been working on La Libertaria for more than one year, and now begins the most exciting part… To materialize all those ideas and big efforts. Here’s the calendar of the process that we are going to follow:
We are not alone in this journey, as we have the support of successful and professional people of the audiovisual and academic sector who advise and help us to keep improving La Libertaria in a professional and solid way:
Carla Simón, director of Summer 1993
Marc Crehuet, director of El rey tuerto and nominated for the Goya’s and the Gaudí’s
Jonás Trueba, director of Los exiliados románticos and awarded in the Malaga Film Festival
Javier Rebollo, director of La mujer sin piano
Clara Roquet, scripwriter of 10.000kmand awarded in Premios del Cine Europeo
Jordi Balló, professor in the UPF and promoter of the project Tube d’assaig in BTV
We need your help to film the tv pilot and make La Libertaria come to life.
There’s many ways to make La Libertaria come true. First of all is to believe in it. When you’re a libertarian believer you can also share our VKM link with your friends and family, follow us on social media and spread the word of what’s yet to come.
Another way, and that’s the reason we’re here, is by becoming our patron. We would love that. As you can see on the right part there’s a list of the possible contributions with its correspondent rewards, each one fancier that the last.
We make it easy for you guys: you can choose your favourite reward, do your contribution with a system 100% safe and, only if we get our aim, you’ll be charged and receive your reward.
Of those 1800 €, approximately 30% will go to taxes and commissions (21% IVA, 7% Verkami).
We have 40 days to achieve the goal of 1800€. If in this period we don't achieve the goal (luckily this is not going to happen), you will not be charged for the money contributed but you will not receive the rewards either. And we won't get a penny.
If you have a business, and want to become a sponsor you can join the collaborator brands of La Libertaria, or contribute in kind, sent us an e-mail to [email protected]
These are some rewards:
Where are we going to allocate your support?
La Libertaria is a fifty/fifty financed project. We (aka ‘Las Libertinas’) have made an initial investment, but we don’t have enough to start, so only with you support we’ll be able to fund the whole project. In this graphic you can see how are we going to spend the capital:
