Film Website



What does a film maker do when he’s not making films? He postpones chores, drinks coffee, gets drunk, meets friends, goes to concerts, has relationship trouble, is lonely, goes for walks – and collects memories for a future film. Leon, a young film-maker from Madrid, is in limbo between two projects. One is over, the next still uncertain. His days pass like days pass when one just lets them pass. A film about not making films, about wasting time and about wasted time. And incidentally an enchanting film portrait of Madrid. Screening on 03.10. in attendance of: Jonás Trueba (Director)


JONÁS TRUEBA (*1981) was nominated for a Goya for his debut Todas las canciones hablan de mí [Every Song is about Me] (2010). In 2013, FILMFEST HAMBURG howed his film The Wishful Thinkers. He is the son of Oscar®-winner Fernando Trueba.
