Two ex-guerrillas reunite at an illegal excavation site to look for the body of a third colleague who disappeared 30 years ago. But they are no longer the same people they used to be. The tension builds and secrets kept for so long gradually come to light as they progress in the search for their friend. Enfant-terrible and multidisciplinar artist Isaki Lacuesta, author of one of the recent masterpieces of Spanish cinema, La leyenda del tiempo, always pays attentive to the mutual intoxications between reality and fiction, between fact and myth. Thought-provoking, always inspiring thriller, the film is about whether or not it’s best to remain quiet about the past.

About the Director
Isaki Lacuesta (Gerona, 1975) is one of the most original and important Catalan filmmakers working today. Although a documentarian by training, his films include touches straight out of fiction and an original and fascinating fusion of genres and languages. A complete retrospective of his work, “Swimming in a Sea of Images: The Cinema of Isaki Lacuesta” was organized in collaboration by the Ramon Llull Institute, Catalan Films, and the University Pompeu in 2011. The event included Lacuesta’s documentaries, narratives, and short films. Among other projects, Lacuesta is currently developing a television comedy series.

Lacuesta’s feature The Double Steps (2011) was awarded the Golden Shell at San Sebastian Film Festival. His documentary El Cuaderno de Barro (2011) received a Golden Medal at the International Festival of Audiovisual Programs (FIPA) in Biarritz. His film La Leyenda del Tiempo (2006) was recognized as the Best Spanish Film of the Year by the Catalan Critics Association.
