Un impulso colectivo Spain, Argentina 116 min Catalan premiere


Two filmmakers, Catalan Meritxell Colell and Argentine Lucía Vassallo, start filming their day-to-day lives and thus establish a correspondence that keeps them in contact despite the distance. The result is a conversation in which the passage of time, cinema as a passion and way of life, and the difficulty of filming in these times become a beautiful cinematographic mosaic, an album of images, intense and moving.

Presented by Meritxell Colell
