We are delighted to announce CONFUSION has been invited to the 6th International Urban Film Festival in Tehran, which takes place from July 30 to August 5, 2017.
The International Urban Film Festival is one of the most important festivals in Iran, “with the goal of identifying remarkable aspects of Urban Life Patterns and innovative cinematic works and creating a platform for exchange of ideas and experiences among world cities”.
We are pleased to announce we handle the international rights of Silvia Munt’s AFECTADOS (A Farm of Passage) -original title: La Granja del Pas-, which previously earned the Documentary First Prize at Valladolid Film Festival and was presented in prestigious festivals this year such as DocLisboa or One World Prague.
The film will be released in France on November 16, 2016.
The film is a tribute to citizens’ resistance and solidarity:
Following the world economic crisis in 2008, the unemployment rate in Spain has reached up to 27% and close to 600,000 people have been evicted from their homes. A new civic movement started in Barcelona, based on the right to decent housing, and gradually spread through the country. This emotional film tracks the people gathering at a place called ‘The Farm of Passage’, where individuals of all ages and social classes share their stories and ask for emergency assistance. All have had their hopes and certainties shaken to the core, but this has increased the inspiring strength of human solidarity and mutual support radiating from them.
