THE DAYS TO COME
ELS DIES QUE VINDRAN
2019, Film Factory, 97 min, Spain, Dir: Carlos Marques-Marcet

Carlos Marques-Marcet’s third feature-length film follows a couple in Barcelona, Vir (Maria Rodríguez Soto) and Lluís (David Verdaguer), who have only been dating for a year when they discover they have become pregnant. The film has a compelling documentary quality, in that the actors are a real-life couple expecting their first child. Marques-Marcet seizes this opportunity to create a hybrid film that offers an intimate and realistic view into the joys, fears and challenges of pregnancy, and the radical change it brings to a relationship. The film took home several awards at the recent Málaga film festival. “A film that's neither quite documentary nor quite fiction, and all the more intense because of that.” - Jonathan Holland, Hollywood Reporter.

JOURNEY TO A MOTHER’S ROOM
VIAJE AL CUARTO DE UNA MADRE
2018, Outsider Pictures, 90 min, Spain, Dir: Celia Rico Clavellino

Mother Estrella (Lola Dueñas) has carefully controlled the world that she and daughter Leonor (Anna Castillo) inhabit. When Leonor resolves to make a new beginning in London, however, Estrella faces a life of solitude—a life in which she will have to find purpose apart from her child. Lovingly crafted and executed with a restrained understanding of mother-daughter relations by screenwriter-director Celia Rico Clavellino, VIAJE AL CUARTO DE UNA MADRE tells a tale of motherhood and of life’s continuation once the task of parenting has seemingly ended.
