L.A. OLA - Spanish Contemporary Cinema Showcase features LES AMIGUES DE L’ÀGATA

LES AMIGUES DE L’ÀGATA, a four-hander final degree project, has been making friends on the Spanish indie circuit. AGATA’S FRIENDS is a conversation-based Catalan-language work of great promise which traces in claustrophobically intimate detail and with much subtlety the changing dynamics of the relationships between four girlfriends on the frontier between adolescence and adulthood. 


Agata and her friends are perhaps less interesting as characters than as representatives of a generation. There’s something superficial and empty about these hesitant, thoughtful conversations about boys and future uncertainties, with the whole adding up to a portrait of strong emotions with too little to work on, and of millennial lives with too little to look forward to.

Cast: Marta Canas, Carla Linares, Elena Martin, Victoria Serra

Directors-screenwriters-directors of photography-editors: Laia Alabart, Alba Cros, Laura Rius, Marta Verheyen

 

L.A. OLA is a showcase of the best contemporary independent cinema from Spain. The Spanish filmmaking scene is emerging as one of the most fertile and successful in Europe with a new generation of young Spanish filmmakers who are winning great acclaim at prestigious international film festivals.
