She was also featured at the official selection of renowned festivals (Sundance International Independent film festival, Guadalajara-México, Alcine, Versión Española) and also in screenings at the Cervantes Institute outside Spain.

Trenor conducted a field study in Spain, Mozambique, and the Philippines. His goal was to work on a project to give hope and not wallow in violence. To capture the intimacy of her portraits, she was advised by a psychologist from the Women's Center in Valencia. His penultimate project has been the documentary short film 'Dónde estabas tú?, Still unpublished, but he is already working on his leap to length. His debut feature will be titled as Robert Wyatt's album 'Rock Bottom', and is intended as a tribute to the former singer and drummer for the 1970s groups Soft Machine and Matching Mole.
