Saturday. Nightfall. The ball travels quickly across the court as the players try to find gaps in the defense. Lucía, twenty-five, leaves handball training and sets off to pick up her brother under the lights of a city she thinks she knows.
Álvaro studies audiovisual communication and music in Galicia, theatre in Chicago and filmmaking at the London Film School where he graduates in 2013 with the film ‘Curricán’. In London, he establishes himself as a film director and editor, founds the Galician Film Forum and teaches film at the Young For Film School. His short film ‘Matria’ was a 2019 Goya nominee and won more than sixty awards including the 2018 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize. Xacio Baño’s first feature film ‘Trote’, which he edited, had its world premiere at the 2018 Locarno Film Festival and premiered nationally at the 2018 San Sebastián Film Festival. One year later he comes back to Locarno, this time as a director, for the international premiere of his latest short film ‘16 de decembro’. He is currently developing his first feature film script provisionally titled ‘Algo parecido á felicidade’.
