A Job and a Film

Highlights Highlights Highlights
The film leans towards the art house genre, and reflects the photographic skills of the director who built his whole film on visual language, with minimum script and sound effects.
Symbolism is also the director's main tool, as he strolls with his camera into an abandoned old factory, toying with light and composing vivid artistic scenes that reflect how one can be trapped between his memories and fears.
The film follows the auteur theory, where the director’s individual style gives the film its unique character.
The film proposes a unique language of images and a creative cinematic style that rebels against the traditional cinema.
The film won a Special Mention for Best Actor at the Madrid PNR Film Festival.

“It's encouraging to see a production with reduced resources, but titanic in its ambition" Santiago Alverú – Cinemania (Spanish)
