THE INNOCENCE
LA INNOCÈNCIA
2019, Filmax, 92 min, Spain, Dir: Lucía Alemany

Lis (Carmen Arrufat) is a teenager who dreams of leaving behind her small Catalan town and moving to Barcelona to become a performer. During the languid summer, Lis staves off boredom by partying with her friends and dating an older boy (Joel Bosqued). She must keep the relationship secret from her conservative parents, but this is no easy task with the town’s lack of privacy and gossiping neighbors. As the summer comes to a close and Lis receives an unexpected surprise, she faces the difficult decision of how to come clean to her parents. “There are few directorial debuts that are so sincere, so impulsive, so direct.” - Luis Martínez, El Mundo.


ADVANTAGES OF TRAVELLING BY TRAIN
VENTAJAS DE VIAJAR EN TREN
2019, WaZabi Films, 106 min, Spain/France, Dir: Aritz Moreno

"Would you like me to tell you about my life?" Editor Helga Pato (Pilar Castro) is approached with this disconcerting question during a train journey. Her seatmate turns out to be Ángel Sanagustín (Ernesto Alterio), a psychiatrist who specializes in personality disorders. During the trip, Ángel tells her the sordid and delirious story of the worst clinical case he has ever faced: Martín Urales de Úbeda (Luis Tosar), an extremely dangerous and paranoid patient obsessed with garbage, among many other things, as an instrument of control. This fortuitous encounter will irremediably mark the future of Helga and all the other characters involved in a series of unpredictable plots that overlap, layer after layer, until they reach a delirious climax.
