In this edition the youngest audience of the festival have their own representation and space. We can enjoy several films that narrate the first stages of life. A few years full of contradictions, doubts, adventures, discovery of identities, loves and failures. A set of drives taken to the big screen by filmmakers from all around the world. It’s a mix of glances to reflect and understand which are the stories and narratives of the best author cinema in the current panorama.
Seven are the films that run through this spectrum. With Cidade onde envelheço the director Marília Rocha shows us the adventures of two Portuguese friends who embody two stages in the love story about the place where they live. El futuro perfecto of the filmmaker Nele Wohlatz talks about identity, miscommunication and immigration without falling into the topics of social cinema.
With Días Color Naranja the filmmaker Pablo Llorca brings a nostalgic look to the lost youth; a train trip in which starts an unexpected love story. Matías Piñeiro with Hermia & Helena takes us to the streets of New York with a film that keeps reflecting on love, bohemian life and art, full with shakespearean references. The filmmaker Caroline Deruas transports us to Rome with the film L’indomptée during an artistic residence where to women lived a strange love-hate relationship due to the ghost of the old residents of the villa. The direction debut of Leire Apellaniz leaves us with El ultimo verano, an honest portrait with a melancholic way to look at dying cinema. Finally a delicate and fresh look within our program, Carla Simón will set us in a little girl point of view to talk about death and emotional readjustments with Estiu 1993.
The screening of Días color naranja will have the presentation of the UJAC (Unión Joven Alternativa Cinemática) to guide and establish the most cinephilic and freshest dialogues of the festival. The film recommendations for young viewers have been developed jointly with Cinema en Curs and Moving Cinema, from A Bao A Qu programs. Likewise, the “Young Programmers” of UJAC is an initiative promoted within the framework of Moving Cinema.
