Showing as part of ¡Viva! 18th Spanish and Latin American Film Festival
Héctor (Amadís de Murga) works the night-shift in a Barcelona scrapyard. At the 24-hour shop opposite, the attendant never speaks to him when he buys his nightly sandwich. Caught between the yard’s immense machines and debris, his interest in accounts of the immensity of the cosmos, and a grim home life, Héctor slowly builds to a violent act of despair. The film’s style too is bottled up: bleak, static and glistening—a dark, alternative gem.
