la reina de los lagartos

Belonging to the lineage of La Hora Chanante, Miguel Noguera and Venga Monjas, with a background in the world of webseries, Burnin' Percebes have been writing the underground history of Spanish cinema for a decade with a filmography made by counting up every penny. La reina de los lagartos is their latest feature, shot in super 8. The day comes when Berta (Bruna Cusí, Summer 1993) and Javi (Javier Botet, "monster" of the performance that began as the girl Medeiros in [Rec]) have to say goodbye after their summer affair, because a spaceship comes looking for Javi. But what if it doesn't come?
