Special Screening Presente y Futuro


Lucia Alemany | Spain | 2019 | 92 min.
O.V in Catalan and Spanish subtitled in English and Spanish

Small town, big hell. Lis knows this well, and at the age of fifteen she faces a summer in which, together with her friends, she learns things about her body and her own identity, dreaming of someday becoming a circus artist. That summer also begins a relationship that hides from her parents (Laia Marull and Sergi López) and neighbors: a hostile territory, full of sexism and gossip. But autumn arrives and Lis, played with great intensity by debutante actress, Carmen Arrufat, discovers that she is pregnant. A refreshing and luminous (beyond the sorrows it narrates) first feature premiered in the New Directors section of the San Sebastian festival.

Lucía Alemany (Traiguera, 1985) studied Audiovisual Communication and later Direction at the ESCAC (Catalan School of Cinema and Audiovisuals). Her first short film, 14 años y un día, shot in his native town, in his mother tongue and with no professional actors, was born out of that search in the field of innovation. She has also participated in the production of films such as El olivo (Icíar Bollaín, 2016) or En tu cabeza (Daniel Sánchez Arévalo, Borja Cobeaga, Kike Maíllo, Alberto Ruiz Rojo, 2016). La inocencia, her first feature film, premiered in San Sebastián Film Festival.
