Two feature films advised by our #LAB in the 3rd and 4th editions will open and close the 8th edition of Novos Cinemas for the Galician public. Carlos Martínez-Peñalver and Ángel Filgueira call upon the complicity of an audience willing to immerse themselves in their atmospheric, sensorial (and sensual) stories. Á procura da estrela (A Shepherd’s Tale), debut of the director from Vigo, is located in a bordering and ephemeral territory in which figure and landscape make up an inseparable whole: a cosmos where myths, legends and the real world live all together. On the other hand, Cando Toco un Animal (Stroking an Animal), the second feature film by the director from Redondela, finds in the body and skin of its characters the ideal path to explore the sentimental map of contemporary generations: those whose affections and desires go beyond conservative barriers.
