La pérdida / Galdutakoa
Enrique Gabriel, Javier Angulo

The movie is fashioned around interviews with some dozen Argentinean exiles who lead successful careers in their host countries. What would today?s Argentina be like if it hadn?t lost that brilliant up-and-coming ge...

Abel is a lonely man in his forties hired to collect bad debts. Although he makes good money, his job is anything but gratifying. His dream is to leave it all behind and move with his son to a house near the sea. Nevertheless, since he lost his wife in a traffic accident, he doesn't exactly lead an exemplary life; quite the opposite in fact. Kay has spent her whole life on the streets. When she was four, her father, Sebas, was already using her as an accomplice in his swindles. Now, barely twenty, she makes a living ripping people off. She's fed up with it all, but theft is her way of life, the only way she knows. Chance unites Abel and Kay. The attraction is immediate. They join forces on a heist. The thing is dangerous, but the potential rewards are great.

Una cierta verdad / Egia jakin bat
Abel García Roure
Spain 
Over a period of two years, the documentary chronicles six people who frequent the same mental health centre in the outlying areas of Barcelona: Sabadell?s Parc Taulí Hospital. They all share the same problem: grave psychosis, a mental disorder encompassing schizophrenia and paranoia.

Over a period of two years, the documentary chronicles six people who frequent the same mental health centre in the outlying areas of Barcelona: Sabadell?s Parc Taulí Hospital. They all share the same problem: grave psychosis, a mental disorder encompassing schizophrenia and paranoia. Doctors and patients who live with the disease from day to day narrate their tribulations to the camera. We therefore hear different personal experiences from, among others, Javier, who has been having auditory hallucinations and delirium about cosmic matters for 20 years, or Bernat, who takes a closer look at the social reaction occurring when a person admits to suffering from the illness.

Familystrip
Lluís Miñarro
Spain 
An improvised film, initially intended as a family gift, unexpectedly becomes the chronicle of a disappearing generation. It orally transmits the echoes of a Spain marked by Catholicism and the Civil War. A discreet, simple work packed with the sparkle of life.

Fuga de cerebros / Adituen ihesa
Fernando González Molina

Emilio, a student at a rundown neighbourhood high school, is a shy boy who generally scrapes by with marks of 5 and has spent his entire life nurturing a secret love for Natalia, the beautiful bright girl in his class.

Emilio, a student at a rundown neighbourhood high school, is a shy boy who generally scrapes by with marks of 5 and has spent his entire life nurturing a secret love for Natalia, the beautiful bright girl in his class. Just when he?s decided to tell her his feelings, Natalia learns she?s received a scholarship to study Medicine at Oxford. While all seems lost for Emilio, his ostracized schoolmates refuse to give up. Having forged records and scholarships, this bunch of numbskulls disembark at Oxford, wreaking chaos on the peaceful campus life: a blind boy determined to enjoy the same opportunities as sighted people, a lover of heavy music with too much testosterone in a wheelchair, an intellectual leader with no intellect to his name and a gypsy whose strong point, apart from shady deals and swindling, is his kind heart.

The ex-chairman of the leading Spanish association for deportees, Enric Marco, sets out on a journey to set his past straight, driving to Germany by car. Two years previously, a historian had demonstrated that Enric Marco wasn?t the resistance member he claimed to be and that his concentration camp experiences told on TV for years were his own invention. Now, Marco follows the same route as he covered by train in 1941 as part of a workers? convoy sent by Franco to Hitler mid-World War. This journey, leading to Kiel prison, where he spent a year accused of spreading communist propaganda, before being acquitted and returning to Spain, often runs into the imaginary journey he repeatedly narrated: his voyage from the French resistance to the concentration camps in cattle trains, the same fate suffered by thousands of Spanish Republicans exiled after the Civil War.

She?s a hairdresser in need of practice. He?s got hair and the yen to please. The result is one absurd hairdo after the other that the boy puts up with because he?s mad about her. But she has different feelings. She believes that there are two kinds of guys: the ones you fancy and the ones that buy you fantas. Pagafantas is a comedy about a boy who has repeatedly heard the words ?I love you?, but always subsequently qualified with ?as a friend?. He?s sure that, with a bit of patience, she?ll realise that they?re meant for one another. And that?s what he?s doing, biding his time armed with bags of patience. But as eveyone knows, patience has its limits.

Mar Coll
Spain 
Léa suddenly has to return to Girona when her grandfather on her father's side passes away. There, she's awaited by the family she's seen virtually nothing of since she left. The death of the Vich i Carbó patriarch is the ideal excuse for forced co-existence between his descendents.

Léa suddenly has to return to Girona when her grandfather on her father's side passes away. There, she's awaited by the family she's seen virtually nothing of since she left. The death of the Vich i Carbó patriarch is the ideal excuse for forced co-existence between his descendents. The three days occupied by the wake, mass and burial are a perfect opportunity to observe the show of appearances put on by a conservative middle class where problems are always implicit but never explicit.
La vergüenza / Lotsa
David Planell
Spain 
The Shame occurs in a single morning. The morning when Pepe and Lucía, a modern, well-to-do couple in their 30s, have decided to tell Jimena, the social worker, that life with Manu is too hard; that they can?t get used to their adopted 8-year-old Peruvian son; that the six months they?ve been living with him have been hell; and that they want to give him back. But a decision o...
The Shame occurs in a single morning. The morning when Pepe and Lucía, a modern, well-to-do couple in their 30s, have decided to tell Jimena, the social worker, that life with Manu is too hard; that they can?t get used to their adopted 8-year-old Peruvian son; that the six months they?ve been living with him have been hell; and that they want to give him back. But a decision of this importance can?t be taken just like that. This is the kind of decision that takes its toll.
