Notes For a Heist Film (Apuntes para una película de atracos)

Part of the Focus on Spain Strand


Elías was a documentary filmmaker fantasising about making a heist film. Flako was the most wanted bank robber during the hard times of the Spanish financial crisis. Flako was in jail. Elías was in the street. Some films must be prepared in advance . . . In the words of Marta Medina from El Confidencial: ‘One of the most refreshing films of Spanish cinema in recent years.’ [15]

Notes for a Heist Film is nominated for the 2019 Award for Best Documentary Feature Film.
