SPAIN IN A DAY & NO ES TAN FRÍA SIBERIA
What do the Spaniards love? What do they fear? What do they believe? Based on the concept of Life in a Day, directed by Kevin Macdonald and produced by Ridley Scott, Spain in a Day brings life to the story of Spanish people (in Spain and abroad) with the aim of creating a film made by them, while also reflecting the fears and dreams of today’s Spain for the Spanish people of tomorrow, at a time of considerable social and cultural changes.
No es tan fría Siberia asks the question “Why would someone offer all his memories to a complete stranger?”
NADIE QUIERE LA NOCHE
Nobody wants the night is about the relentless icy landscape that separates and draws two women together during the long, tense wait for the man they both love in such different ways.
