Pardi di domani: Concorso internazionale
16 de decembro (16 December)
Saturday. Nightfall. The ball travels fast across the court. Lucía leaves handball training and sets off to pick up her brother under the lights of a city she thinks she knows.
A film from Galicia – Spain’s richest filmmaking region in the past years, directed by Sundance Jury Prize winner Álvaro Gago and editor of Trote (Locarno71 – Cineasti del presente). 16 de decembro echoes the case of “La Manada”, when a group of five young men raped a 18-year-old woman in Pamplona and shot it all on a mobile phone. Through a very precise direction and choice/change of point-of-view, Gago embarks with us on an intense and strongly emotional motorbike ride.Stefan Ivančić
