Los lunes al sol / Mondays in the Sun
Official Section

A northern, coastal city, from which the countryside disappeared many a year ago, surrounded by industries responsible for the spurts of exaggerated growth that nurture immigration and workers, outlining a horizon of chimneys, rooftops and hopes, of future uprootings. A group of men who daily walk the sloping streets, looking for life's emergency exits. Long-term fear, end-(and beginning)-of-the-month tightrope walkers with neither safety net nor audience, no final applause, making their way daily along the tightrope of casual work, scaffolding their hopes and taking shelter in their occasional pleasures, conversation, routine, as if the shipwreck from which they daily attempt to save themselves wasn't theirs, while they talk about things and laugh, about everything and nothing particular, hopeful, at peace, on a sunny Monday morning.
Madrid, 1968. His first feature, Familia (1996), won the Goya for Best New Director in 1998. Barrio (1998), his second, won that same year the Silver Shell for Best Director at the San Sebastian Festival and a Special Mention from Fipresci, in addition to the 1999 Goya for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. He also directed the short Sirenas (1994) and the documentary Caminantes (2001), and has written several scripts for films and TV series.
