The Instituto Cervantes in Bucharest invites film lovers, this weekend, to a programme which brings together a number of films presented in the “Cine en construcción” section, at festivals in San Sebastián and Toulouse. The “Cine en construcción” cycle is, this year, at its fifth edition. This year’s selection includes two Argentinean films, a Guatemala production, a Mexican one and a Spain-Mexico co-production. All the films will be screened at the Studio Cinema. Tickets will be on sale at the cinema’s box-office (RON 10 full price or RON 28 – a pass which allows access to four screenings).
The guest of the opening gala will be the director of the film “El árbol” (The Tree), Carlos Serrano Azcona. A graduate of Film and Philosophy, Carlos Serrano Azcona directed several short-reel films and documentaries, taking part in festivals in Spain and across Europe. “El árbol” marks his feature film debut. “Cine en construcción” is a project initiated by the San Sebastián Festival, meant to promote debut and experimental productions signed by Iberian and Latin American filmmakers.

Synopsis: Santiago is separated from his family. A court order prevents him from getting in touch with his wife and kids.
On top of this, as a consequence of the separation and of his lifestyle, he ends up being “forced” to work in a friend’s bar, whence he is sacked. Thus begins the darkest time for him, when he will have to confront reality and face up to the responsibility of changing or dying.
