LA CIUDAD OCULTA

Victor Moreno

Spain, France, Germany 90 min. min Catalan premiere

Synopsis

The technical dream, deployed towards the exploration of space, has also motivated an inverse movement: the opening of a subterranean world. Beneath the modern city there lies a vast labyrinth of galleries, tunnels, sewers, transportation networks… An immense spiders web that sits upon and depends on the visible city; a functional and essential space but also a symbolic area, a hidden sphere: the unconscious of the city. An urban symphony that invites us to reflect upon the habitat we have created for ourselves.
