You will find our posters all around the city. But here is a sneak preview.

Now we introduce two more films, Human Hibernation and Love Lies Bleeding. Both were presented at Berlinale 2024, and Human Hibernation won a Fipresci Award.

Love Lies Bleeding

Director: Rose Glass 

Lou is a reclusive gym manager who falls hard for Jackie, an ambitious bodybuilder who’s heading to Las Vegas to pursue her dream. Their love soon leads to violence as they get pulled deep into the web of Lou’s criminal family.

The Human Hibernation

Director: Anna Cornudella 

The Human Hibernation is a film about human nature if it had been different.

Starting from the disappearance of Erin, a child who wakes up prematurely from hibernation, Clara, her older sister, will take us on a journey of searching for answers and confronting the narratives pre-established by the society in which she lives where people hibernate during the coldest months of the year. It reflects on the human being, his contradiction, and the animal condition.
