Una vez fuimos salvajes / When we were wild
This feature documentary is an imagined conversation between the author and the neighbourhood of San Cristóbal, in the outskirts of Madrid. It is a constant game between form and essence, that confronts the narrator’s prejudice with the spectator’s emotions; a free and evoking tour that progressively abandons a classic documentary structure to become a first person essay.
