Who are the new heroes of contemporary arthouse cinema? During the months of April and May, La Casa Encendida presents a double film cycle featuring epic tales and survival stories of everyday life, where our outsider superheroes combat the invisible villains of loneliness and alienation.
The first part of the cycle (in April) stars young people from Palestine, Argentina, Mozambique and the Philippines. These confused individuals will use their sexualised bodies to escape from their own private hells.
Cycle produced with the collaboration of Carlota Moseguí.
