Un impulso colectivo - Curts Spain 25 min Catalan premiere


Brothers Evaristo, Félix and Baltasar Guallar are the only inhabitants of Escó, a crumbling village in Aragón, Spain. In 1959, during Franco’s dictatorship, Escó was expropriated. The village was abandoned by all but the Guallar family who refused to leave behind their home and livestock. Today, the construction of a motorway to the Pyrenees threatens the brother’s isolated world and Escó’s very existence once again. What will be the final fate of the Guallars and the curious place they call home?
