Bailar la locura (Dancing madness)

Marta Espar and Maiol Virgili

This documentary takes as its starting point a piece of choreography that was created to represent "a journey into madness", reflecting on the boundary between sanity and madness in an effort to destigmatize the association between madness and deviation from the norm. The three dancers talk to three women who have had psychiatric experiences, to design a choreography to represent their lives.

Project completed with director, Maiol Virgili



Séptimo Piso: Morir a Solas (Seventh Floor: Dying Alone)

Ànnia Monreal, Raül Clemente and Xavi Herrero

This project seeks to portray and raise awareness of the reality of what it means to be elderly. It focuses in particular on the fact that Spanish society is ageing, while the birth rate continues to fall, and it asks whether this sector of society receives the same levels of attention as children, young people and adults. It also reveals that between 10 and 20 per cent of elderly people suffer abuse and mistreatment, whether these are the result of conscious actions or the uncritical acceptance of social custom.

Morir antes de nacer (Death before birth)

Núria Jar Benabarre

This project tackles the topic of perinatal death and grieving throughout the world, through the stories and experiences of women and their families, and the views of experts. This documentary lifts the lid on this phenomenon, a social taboo that must be discussed if we are to do away with the stigma that surrounds it, provide the health care that mothers need, and enable people to grieve their loss in a way that is acknowledged within their culture.



Documentary “Només era un gos” (Just a dog) by Irene Domènech and Haydée Villa

Irene Domènech, Haydée Vila & Jenny Berengueras

This project considers the story of a woman who is being abused and prefers to risk her life rather than be separated from her dog, a condition attached to the offer of a place in a women's refuge. This documentary describes a situation that affects 70 per cent of women who suffer abuse, and which also affects their pets. The project is supported by Mc Guffin Estudio Audiovisual.
