The collective feature film ‘La filla d’algú’, selected in Malaga

Escac Films will also be present at the Malaga Film Festival with three short films, two in the Official Section and one in Corto Málaga.

Once again this year, Escac Films productions will be present at the Festival de Málaga de Cine Español, which this year celebrates its 22nd edition from 15 to 24 March. Two short films in the Official Selection (Sin Pausa by José Cachón, and Benidorm 2017 by Claudia Costafreda), Nacho no conduce by Alejandro Marín in the Corto Málaga section, and the collective feature film La filla d’algú, in ZonaZine. In addition, What is love, a short film by Master in Directing alumni Paco Caballero, will also be screened in the Official Selection.

The film, made by students in the fourth year of the Official Degree at ESCAC and starring the actress Aina Clotet, is a film that was born and takes shape thanks to the energy, creativity and enthusiasm of the students of the different specialities of the degree; directors, scriptwriters, producers, photo and art directors, editors, sound engineers, all of them have thrown themselves into this exciting project.

The feature film was an opportunity to bring together in the same direction the imaginations of a group of students from the school, something that involves great artistic and creative risk.

The young authors have opted to create a unitary and compact project. Each director (Marcel Alcántara, Júlia De Paz Solvas, Sara Fantova, Guillem Gallego, Celia Giraldo, Alejandro Marín, Valentin Moulias, Gerard Vidal, Pol Vidal, Enric Vilageliu and Carlos Villafaina) has shot a series of sequences of the film, with a single plot and always following the main character. In this way, they have ensured that the film tells a story that is not capitulated, with a uniform and cohesive tone throughout, giving the film a visual and narrative unity.

The rest of the departments (screenplay, cinematography, art, sound, production) have also worked together.

Synopsis

Eli, 30 years old, lawyer, pregnant, upper class. On the very day she is about to attend the oral hearing of a media trial that she has been preparing for some time with her father, a well-known lawyer in Barcelona, he disappears. Her search will lead Eli to discover a reality that will turn her family and emotional stability upside down.

The ESCAC’s collective feature film
One of the activities carried out by the 4th year students at ESCAC is the collective feature film; a practice in which students from all specialities take part.

This initiative has given rise to titles such as Puzzlez Love, a romantic comedy that, after its screening at the San Sebastian International Film Festival (Zabaltegi section), was broadcast on Televisió de Catalunya and Canal +, and Los inocentes, a slasher that premiered at the Sitges Festival, before being shown at international festivals, also on Televisió de Catalunya.
