13.01.23 - Escac Films,

This is the third time an ESCAC short film has been selected for the Berlin Festival, after the final year short film En la azotea by Damià Serra in 2016 and Cocodrilo by graduate Jorge Yúdice in 2019, in the Berlinale Generation Competition section.

La herida luminosa is a contemporary fable about the mass tourism of young British people on the Spanish coast. The short film had its premiere at ZINEBI (Bilbao International Documentary and Short Film Festival) in its 64th edition, to great critical acclaim.

Sun starved teenagers take on a dreamy trip to the Balearic Islands in the pursuit of light and warmth. They must absorb it and be a vessel in order to transport it back to their heavy clouded Kingdom.
