Rocío Huertas | Spain | 2020 | 61 min.
O.V. in Spanish

A film in which Rocío Huertas reflects on the Sevillian neighbourhood of the Alameda de Hércules, long scarred by "whores and junkies", where underground culture and later property profiteering broke out. Based on Juan Sebastián Bollaín's documentary, Huertas guide us through interviews with emblematic neighbours of the district (such as Deborah Santa Cruz de la Jara, Fernando Mansilla or Manolo Solo) interweaving their personal memories told through animated collages, and through the tour organized in collaboration with the SEFF in 2019. She is always keen to be involved with those who endure and continue to live against the current of gentrification.
