Desaparecer, a film developed and produced in ESCAC’s Opera Prima Programme, narrates the life of Zurdo, a thirty-something man lost in the world, who discovers that he is beginning to disappear. A film about missed opportunities, broken dreams and the frustration of a generation that no one expected. Directed by graduate Josecho de Linares and with a technical team full of graduates, it was presented in the ZonaZine section of the last Malaga Festival. Desaparecer can be seen on Monday 25 June at 5pm at Es Baluard.

Quiero lo eterno, about a group of teenage outsiders who embark on a journey to find themselves in another reality. The world is uninhabited and they destroy everything they find along the way. The new film by Miguel Angel Blanca (You lost memories, Després de la generació feliç, Un lloc on caure mort) was presented at the DA Film Fest. Quiero lo eterno can be seen on Wednesday, June 27th at 18.45h in Es Baluard and will be attended by the director.

Jean François y el sentido de la vida will be screened on Friday 29 June at 18.45 at Es Baluard and will feature special guests.
