Un impulso colectivo - Curts Spain 25 min Catalan premiere


The seabed, so unfathomable, can also be the metaphor of our hidden history, perhaps of the interstices of the Civil War that we have never been told. For example, of a relative who died in one of its battles, very young, and about whom we know nothing. It’s just about diving in and rebuilding that story. Will a few letters and a trip be enough? One of the Spanish shorts film of the year, from the director of Trote.
