Ian de la Rosa, co-author of the HBO Max hit “Veneno”, has climbed to “Las Lenias Discontinuas”, the second feature of Anxos Fazans in Spain (“A Estacion Violenta”) and one of the first headlines in Satima, Galicia. She has set up a production house with producer Sylvia Fuentes.
De La Rosa, director of “Victor XX”, an ESCAC graduate shorthand director who won third prize in the Cannes 2015 Symphony Competition, is currently co-writing “Las Linnaeus Discontinuas” with Fazans, when he debuted his management features.
Supported by the Galician Agency for Cultural Arts (Agadic), Fagen’s Sophomore Outing is one of five projects selected for this year’s incubator platform, a six-month producer consulting initiative that is part of the Madrid Film and Audiovisual Screen Industry Program. School (ECAM).
One of the fastest-growing youngest geniuses in the new generation of Galician films, whose members include Oliver Luxe (“Fire Will Come”) and Luis Patino (“Costa da Morte”), Fazans “Las Linnaeus Discontinuas” is an impossibly romantic drama.
The 50-year-old bride, who is going through a divorce, which means losing her flat and spouse, meets 25-year-old Dennis when he enters her home for the purpose of robbery. Instead of turning him into a cop, he started talking to her.
Despite belonging to a seemingly very different world, Bia and Dennis recognize themselves among others. Feelings of complexity and mutual attraction grow. They spend the whole weekend together, and when they resume their lives, they are not the same. “Sometimes, the boldest step is to be able to stop, change, and rebuild from the inside out,” the summary goes.
“There’s a trans-gender young man in the picture and Ian can clearly bring his collective and knowledge of how to create trans-gender themes,” Frans said.
“But I’m not interested in him at all. I’m interested in her look style. We’ve been working together on screenplay since the beginning bringing us two styles and experiences.
Fransons argued that a central theme of the film is failure. Neither Dennis nor Bia have met the expectations of their lives that others have created for them. Not meeting what others expect from you is a social failure but not a defeat. Is there any point in exhausting yourself in this struggle, showing courage and above all perseverance? Or, he asks, is there any other way to survive than to survive?
Running its day-to-day by Fuentes, now moving from line production to production on “¿Qué hicimos mal” and Alvaro Gago’s “16 de diciembre”, Vigo-based Simatima is the first feature of the year, fiction “Cando toco un animal. ”It’s now shooting a documentary,“ Patrinos ”and preparing a doc short,“ Hobbiter ”to roll out next year.
