Proyección: largometrajes #wpp16bcn
23 November, 2016 @ 19:00 - 21:00
Screening of the winning audiovisuals in the Multimedia Contest’s Long Form category: The Surrender (first prize), Break In (second prize) and A Year in Space (third prize).
Filmmakers Mikel Aristregi and José Bautista, winners of the second prize in the Long Form category, will be present to talk about their work Break In, the product of a long process that began when Aristregi travelled to Cambodia in 2014 to document the lives of the capital’s street children. There he met Pich, an 11-year-old boy addicted to glue and meth, who was later admitted to a rehabilitation centre run by the NGO Our Home, though he ran away a year later. In 2013, the photographer returned to Phnom Penh to find Pich and see what had become of him. His search as he talks to friends and relatives tells a heart-breaking story of an entire generation lost to drug consumption.
Approximate duration: 2 hours
