When We Were Wild (Una vez fuimos salvajes)
Part of the Documentaries Strand
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, which confronts the narrator’s prejudice with the spectator’s emotions. It is a freeing and evoking tour that progressively abandons a classic documentary structure to become a first-person essay.
Screening with: Americano/Fon Cortizo/Spain/2017/17 min/English and Spanish subtitles. A short film, following the story of Emanuel Xavier, a former homeless teen now fighting discrimination against the Latin and LGBTIQ communities in the USA through poetry and spoken word.
