Esquece Monelos

(Monelos. Forget no river)

Ángeles Huerta
76' / 2016 / Spain

Special Mention of the Jury for the Feature Length Documentary

There are more neurons in a human brain than there are particles in the universe. But if we could line them all up, one after the other, the only thing we would see would be a small river; an insignificant yet infinite river.
Under the streets of A Coruña there is a river that has been forgotten by many but which overflows from time to time, reclaiming its former course.
Monelos. Forget No River is more than a film about this river, which has now become a sewer. It’s a film about our own underground currents.
