Synopsis: Manel Raga, a renowned Catalan filmmaker (La Gallina, Venècia’13, Grbavica, Locarno’18, among others) adds a new tableau to his filmography. Starting from childhood memories, he creates a succession of paintings about religious legacy. An evocation of Saviours, Kings and traitors, the theatrical La Passió of his village, Ulldecona, and great local actors, with some Berlanguian and Pasolinian touches without losing any of its singularity.

Synopsis: The Menorcan filmmaker Macià Florit builds in his first feature film a vast essay full of layers: the origins of his native rocky island, the roots of time, family layers, the very intense portrait of his brother and himself. A diary that delves into seismic emotions and symphonic movements, built on an extraordinary poetic text.

Synopsis: The filmmaker Marga Almirall compiles images made in super 8 by the father of a family. Like other fathers, he frames the mother, the children, the beach… Images of a collective memory that conceal a universal story. In this case, Elena’s story, narrated from a therapeutic diary that frames her predetermined social habitat. Common images reveal impressive sensations.

Synopsis: Two filmmakers, Carla Simón (Estiu 1993, 2017) and Dominga Sotomayor (Demasiado tarde para morir joven, 2018) initiate a filmed epistolary exchange. Through celluloid, archive, materials from the past, present and future, they link visions and thoughts. From intimacy to political urgency, from being a woman and making films.

Synopsis: Juana Robles (Tortosa, 1983) is a visual artist who grew up in Switzerland and currently lives in Dublin. She confronts, with a super 8 camera, the old post-war landscape of Belchite and Corbera d’Ebre, re-walking at the same time through a fragment of Pere Portabella (Informe General, 1976). Still shots of a country that has not been able to resolve the woes of the past, images and sounds of desolation that also belong to other wars.

Synopsis: The filmmaker Pilar Monsell (Africa 815, 2014) brings to the present ‘El motín del pan’ (The Bread Mutiny), a revolt led by women in the mid-17th century in Andalusia. How to reflect on old demands? How to find images of revolts of which there are no images left? With a 16 mm camera, the filmmaker searches for the reflection of the past. Faces that look at faces over time. Spectral portraits of a kind of distant 15M (an anti-austerity movement in Spain).

Festivals: FIC Xixon, New York Film Festival, Málaga, DocLisboa, Documenta Madrid, among others.

Synopsis: The artist and filmmaker Albert García-Alzórriz (Venice Biennale, 2019) takes us with his work EYES / EYES / EYES / EYES / EYES to an enigmatic and cyclical ambiguity. In a conservation archive of fragments of fallen idols, of statues that also die, as Marker and Resnais said. In a rereading of Kafka on the cyclical idol of Prometheus. A study of oppressive atmosphere, pieces of rocky memory and mysterious tremors.
