Who is Ángeles González-Sinde?

Ángeles González-Sinde Reig is a Spanish scriptwriter, film director and politician. She was Culture Minister of Spain from April 2009 until December 2011.

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 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 González-Sinde's opposition to P2P file sharing and the alleged conflict of interest due to her ties to the film industry. A strict anti-piracy law enacted in Spain in December 2011 has become known colloquially as Ley Sinde, or the Sinde Law, as she was seen as the primary backer of the measure.

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.
