O.V. in Spanish subtitled in English
During the 1969 San Fermin bull run, a man was gored to death in the heart by a bull. There was only one initial to help identify him, H., leaving a thousand questions as to what happened in his last hours alive. Carlos Pardo Ros (also producer and co-founder of the collective lacasinegra) stages the drift of H. in today's Sanfermines: millions of people who merge into a single longing entity, a handful of ghosts who walk surrounded by the pulsation of pleasure and the death of the festivity, and all those nights that we wish would never end. A film which is " an impossible mix between the nihilism of Gaspar Noé and the transcendentalism of Terrence Malick", according to the critic Manu Yáñez.
