The Hidden City
OT: La Ciudad Oculta
Víctor Moreno // Spain, France, Germany, 2018
Documentary Feature // FF2019
DOCUMENTARY A cinematic subterranean journey through the Madrid underworld. Claustrophobic, with virtuoso visuals and a mesmerizing soundtrack. An endless labyrinth of tunnels, sewers and subway stations – the dark zone of the metropolis, its hidden side – the area of operations for specialists who keep the infrastructure going and habitat for rats, cats and owls, who have adapted to the conditions. The urban underbelly is a living organism, a completely functioning system – but also a symbolic place: the city’s subconscious.
DirectorVÍCTOR MORENO (*1981) studied film and philosophy in Madrid. After Edificio España (2014) and Holidays (2010) The Hidden City is his third full-length film.
