Introducing

Focus on young Spanish cinema

Young Spanish cinema navigates between past and present, confronting political issues that the national narrative had tried to sweep under the rug. Let’s take a look at four evenings with representatives of the Madrid, Catalonia and Basque-Navarana scenes.

Synopsis

918 Gau
Before becoming a filmmaker, Arantza Santesteban was an active member of Batasuna, a Basque-Navarian pro-independence left-wing party declared illegal by the Spanish law on parties. She was arrested by the police in 2007, imprisoned and deprived of her freedom for '918 nights'. In this film, the filmmaker makes a critical assessment of both her memories of prison and the relevance of her commitment to the political struggle.

San Simon 62
A few years after the end of the dictatorship, a New Age community settles in the convent of Lizaso, in Navarra. The mothers of the two directors live there for a while. Their daughters embark on a journey to collect the traces of this experience. "We had a tremendous desire for freedom and experimentation," admits one of the participants.
