Learning to make films. That is the subject explored by Gabriel Azorín in Los mutantes, a sober non-fiction piece in which he touches on certain moments, away from the action of filming and its results, to go more deeply into the reflection and the pauses, the true interstices through which slips that elusive knowledge necessary to make films. Sergio Oksman, Carlos Muguiro, Eloy Enciso and Chus Domínguez are the ones who hand the torch on to the new generations, those who gradually mutate in ECAM (Escuela de Cinematografía y del Audiovisual de Madrid) until they become filmmakers, before the eyes of this director who is both teacher and permanent pupil. *World première
