A Young Continent


Mario Jara | Spain | 2019 | 96 min.
O.V in Spanish subtitled in English

Inés is a young woman determined to follow her vocation for music. She has set herself a goal that drives her away from her loved ones, and pushes her to the limit. Featuring free filmmaking ways that hybridize documentary and fiction and remind us of the best of independent cinema, Mario Jara follows the path of Inés in her wandering through the streets of Madrid in search for her place in the world, in what is also the portrait of a generation puzzled by not achieving the high standards that assured them were within their reach. A drift that is taking on more and more dangerous faces, and of uncertain end. A film supported by the ECAM.
