UNA VEZ FUIMOS SALVAJES - WHEN WE WERE WILD
Carmen Bellas | Spain 2015 | 59 Min. | OmeU
Una Vez Fuimos Salvajes (When we were wild) is an imagined conversation between the author and the neighbourhood of San Cristóbal, in the outskirts of Madrid. It is a constant game between form and essence that confronts the narrator's prejudice with the spectator's emotions; a free and evoking tour that progressively abandons a classic documentary structure to become a first person essay.
Carmen Bellas has a diploma in filmmaking from the ECAM (Film School of the Community of Madrid), made several short films and video clips while working as assistant director and script supervisor between Spain and Mexico. This is her first feature length film.
