Marina Antunes [Celluloid 01.21.14] Spain thriller crime

I'd never heard of Sergio Caballero but the trailer for the Spaniard's new movie titled The Distance (La Distancia) certainly got my attention. Not surprising considering that a short search unearthed news that Caballero is a celebrated artist having taken home the Golden Lion at Rotterdam in 2011. His second full length feature sounds just as odd as his debut Finisterrae, but a little more accessible. Maybe.

Here's how the festival programmers describe it:

A performance artist is being held in a deserted Siberian power station following the unexpected death of his oligarch patron. Dryly comic surrealism (with an attractive soundtrack and three telepathic dwarves).

Is that not the greatest sounding thing ever? It certainly helps that the score and cinematography, from Marc Gómez del Moral, looks like an HDR wet dream. I really can't wait for the chance to check this out.

The Distance will have its world premiere at IFFR on January 25.
