La Panadella

Un impulso colectivo - Curts Spain 17 min World premiere Fiction


La Panadella, an emblematic small road town in decline located in Catalonia, is awaiting the arrival of visitors from a mysterious tower. While its inhabitants and passersby follow their monotonous routines, a strange signal manifests in the halls and rooms of this stagnant place. Reality and fiction intertwine with each other to reflect on the historical trauma, the collective memory, and the spatial identity of a silent territory that lives between the nostalgia of the past and the longing for broken dreams.
