LOS QUE DESEAN

LOS QUE DESEAN

In the south of Spain, a cloud of pigeons painted in fluorescent colours crosses the sky. On earth, a group of men are passionately watching the flight of birds. They are witnessing one of the oldest local traditions: a pigeon race unlike any other because it is not a question of speed, but of seduction and desire. «Los que desean» is a film about this tradition of pigeon racing , transmitted from generation to generation, but also about a fascinating male community that communicates more through gestures, bodies or silences, than through words. A film about men and birds, about their intimate and impossible relationships.

A melancholy journey, in a filmic essay that traverses frames and landscapes with the intention that the look is not lost in oblivion.
