YOUNG JURY, “SCREENLY” award
29 June | 19:30h | Teatro Principal | GALICIAN PREMIERE
Mike may always be wandering, but you’d hardly call him a man on the move. His stamping ground is modest, the strip of suburbia between his mom’s house in New Jersey and the pizza place where he works. Mike’s no great conversationalist and isn’t big on direction either, preferring to let things happen than making them happen himself.
