Satélites

Simfonies de ciutat Spain 13 min World Premiere Documentary

Synopsis

Felisa has just turned 18. She longs to have a job and a true friend but disappointment seems to be the driving force behind her new life in La Satélite. A place that aspires to be a large city but is redolent of a small town. Writing is the refuge sought by others in the concrete squares. All that’s left for her is to go dancing at the club. She enjoys it, although it makes her feel uncomfortable having to kiss so many people when she arrives. A visual diary, intimate and timeless, like a sidelong glance at the world, offered from the margins.
