JAUME PLENSA - CAN YOU HEAR ME? 2020
Genre: Documentary Feature Film
Director: Pedro Ballesteros
Screenplay: Pedro Ballesteros, Aurora Sulli
“Can You Hear Me?” is an in-depth exploration of the work and personality of the sculptor Jaume Plensa.
Together with Plensa we visit some of his most representative pieces, sited in public spaces in Spain, France, Sweden, the US, Canada and Japan, on a series of trips that also take in the ideas that nurture his works.
Making the most of the access and intimacy provided by one of the most import artists active on today’s art scene, this documentary deals with the mechanisms leading to artistic creation, the questions that arise from our engagement with it, and how art, that thing which has no use, can transform our ways of seeing and being in the world, if only for an instant.

CONSTELLATION COMELADE 2020
Genre: TV documentary
Director: Luis Ortas
Screenplay: Luis Ortas, Anne-Laure de Franssu
At the crossroads of numerous musical and cultural worlds, Pascal Comelade’s compositions form an irreducible and prolific ensemble. For over 40 years now he has been performing around the world, but his roots are set between the north and the south of the Catalan border. To outline his “instrumental galaxy”, we accompany him on a journey through his homeland, where he lives and where he often performs with some of his friends, visual artists and musicians. As in a kaleidoscope, each of them offers us the reflection of their own experience with Pascal revealing his unique language in constant progress.

THE BELLY OF THE SEA 2021
Format: Feature Film
Director: Agustí Villaronga
Screenplay: Agustí Villaronga, Alessandro Baricco
Cast: Roser Casamajor, Oscar Kapoya
The Italian writer Alessandro Baricco narrates these events to the novel Oceano Mare, concentrated in a chapter titled The belly of the sea. June 1816. The frigate the Alliance, of the French Navy, ran aground on a sandbar off the coast of Senegal. To the attempts to free the hull prove futile, there is no choice but to abandon the ship. As the available boats are not enough to accommodate all the crew, build a raft about 12 meters long and 6 wide. In that boat precarious they force 147 men to board: soldiers, sailors, a few passengers and a few officers. The ship's evacuation plan foresees that the available boats will tow them up to the shore. Still, panic and confusion seize the convoy trying to reach the coast. Due to cowardice or ineptitude, the boats lose contact with the raft. The rope that towed him it breaks, or someone cuts it. The boats continue to approach land, but leave the raft at your luck. The current carries her away, and she disappears over the horizon.
A horror that lasted for days and days.
A scenario in which the worst of cruelties and the sweetest of pities.
A conflict that evokes the wound of man.
