A Letter of Fire

Tani tatuwen piyabanna (Flying with One Wing), an unknown film from Sri Lanka, was released two years ago in Zabaltegi, causing a strong impact on the audience, going on to win numerous awards at different festivals. Its director, Asoka Handagama, has once again chosen San Sebastian for the world premiere of his new work, more sophisticated and with more production means than his former, but equally corrosive and provocative. A powerful melodrama by an unclassifiable moviemaker.
Aguaviva
Ariadna Pujol

A small village in the province of Teruel is becoming depopulated. The mayor comes up with a plan to attract immigrants, particularly Rumanians and Argentineans, so that they can adapt to the local customs and mix with their inhabitants, almost all of whom are elderly.

A small village in the province of Teruel is becoming depopulated. The mayor comes up with a plan to attract immigrants, particularly Rumanians and Argentineans, so that they can adapt to the local customs and mix with their inhabitants, almost all of whom are elderly. Following the success of El cielo gira, Ariadna Pujol makes another documentary originating in the Barcelona's Pompeu Fabra University in the shape of a sociological study with a highly personal style.
Días azules / Blue Days
Israel Sánchez Prieto
Spain 
In Piedrafita, a hamlet in the province of Leon, a group of archaeologists and volunteers excavate in search of the remains of people shot during the Civil War and buried in mass graves. Two women of opposing thought serve as the connecting theme of this document constituting an important link in the struggle to rescue the memory of many victims of the Civil War and the Franco ...
In Piedrafita, a hamlet in the province of Leon, a group of archaeologists and volunteers excavate in search of the remains of people shot during the Civil War and buried in mass graves. Two women of opposing thought serve as the connecting theme of this document constituting an important link in the struggle to rescue the memory of many victims of the Civil War and the Franco period. Israel Sánchez Prieto succeeds at several different moments in making the emotion uncontrollable.
La doble vida del faquir / The Magicians
Elisabet Cabeza, Esteve Riambau

The Magicians returns to a school in the Catalan town of Sant Julià de Vilatorta where, in 1937, in the midst of the Spanish Civil War, an amateur film maker in hiding made an adventure film using the children from an orphanage as actors. The protagonists relive those childhood days when they changed their school uniforms for turbans and exotic costumes, while reality imposed its own fancy dress ball inside and outside their school with military uniforms and priests dressed as civilians.
Bozes lexanas / Far-Off Voices
Juan Miguel Gutiérrez
Spain 
In the 50s, the inhabitants of a small group of hamlets to the north of Huesca sold their land and houses to the state forestry heritage, leaving the region depopulated. The neighbours now recall the miserable conditions in which they lived and express their scepticism regarding the latest fashion popular with city inhabitants of occupying the hamlets.

In the 50s, the inhabitants of a small group of hamlets to the north of Huesca sold their land and houses to the state forestry heritage, leaving the region depopulated. The neighbours now recall the miserable conditions in which they lived and express their scepticism regarding the latest fashion popular with city inhabitants of occupying the hamlets. Juan Miguel Gutiérrez, director of Tabula rasa, affords another rigorously made document stressing a contemporary subject.
