synopsis
Zugzwang in German means obligation to move. Life and chess are not so different. There is a moment in life where you know you have to make a decision, but the best thing to do would be not to make any move. But... you must. We simply call this being screwed. In chess, they call it Zugzwang.

director
Yolanda Centeno moved from Spain to New York in 2010 to study and pursue a career in the film industry through a MFA in Filmmaking. She also graduated in Spain with a double degree in Mass Media and Advertising and a Master in Marketing and Innovative Communication. With a strong background on Advertising, she won some Spanish awards designed to highlight young creative talents and ended up working as copywriter for prestigious international advertising agencies. A few months after she graduated in Spain, she joined a production company that realized documentaries and short films. During that period, her works have been selected in more than 90 film festivals, and Yolanda won awards for several short films, as well as some other advertising contests. After that, she was picked by an organization that sponsors new creative talents in Spain and was granted with a scholarship to study a Master of Fine Arts in New York and Los Angeles (Universal Studio Campus). Her recent projects have been selected in more than 250 film festivals around the world, receiving multiples awards for Best Editing and Best Female Director, among others. She has also been working as a TV Producer (TV Azteca America) and directing promotional videos for different companies, production companies and organizations.
