Pedra pàtria (Homeland Stone) is an autobiographical reflection on Menorcan identity. From a collection of letters, Macià, a filmmaker living in the city, delves into the personal history and sublime landscapes of Menorca, which he shares with his little brother, Lau, who decided to be a farmer on their home island.
Born in Ciutadella de Menorca in 1990, he is a film director and editor who lives and works in Barcelona. He graduated in Humanities from the UPF in Barcelona and, thanks to a DOCMA scholarship in 2014, did a Masters in documentary film directing and production at the IPECC in Madrid, coordinated by producer Carlos Esbert. Since 2013 he has worked as an assistant director, camera operator and editor at two independent audiovisual production companies, Elsabeth produccions and Cicely Films, both based in Barcelona. After directing four short documentaries, Macià Florit is now developing his first feature film as a director Piedra patria. To complete this project, he has received a grant from the Reynolds Foundation and participated in the 2018 Summer Documentary Lab of UnionDocs in Brooklyn (New York), in addition to being invited to the Editing Retreat residence of the Pocantico Center, with support from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, also in the United States.
