Probably the end of a love serves to understand that there is never a true ending, that the end itself is another stage of a story that remains suspended in time. Bò and Marcel decide to gain this awareness when they refind themselves as unique people in a continuous process of change.
Note from the director
Anábasis \ a.ná.ba.sis \ feminine
1. Wikipedia: Anabasis is a Greek term that means expedition to the interior.
2. Eric Baudelaire: Political and personal epic, allegory of a journey that is at the same time a wandering through the unknown and the return to oneself.
We talk about solitude and meeting. Search. Also about the need (increasingly urgent) to map emotions. We explore a different communication that educates the feelings to protect them. Bò and Marcel decide to face each other using masks and stripping them off. Anábasis portrays that rite of pain and love, a rite of passage, a space and suspended time in which to live and feel the end of a relationship.
Who is behind Segundodesayuno?
Segundodesayuno is a film collective formed due to the shared need to use cinema as a subject for experimentation. We are a transoceanic team born in Barcelona and located between Pamplona, Paris, Córdoba and Macao. We work together and from a distance in order to make real the creative impulse to capturate stories located on the border between documentary and fiction.
Anábasis is our first fiction short film. The film is based on acting improvisation, a game that stretches until the writing of the script and ends up offering us bits of filmed reality.
Screenplay: Catarina Brites Soares & Lara Curto Martínez
Directed by: Carlotta Napolitano
Production: Violeta Blasco Caño & Alejandro Cabrera Pérez
Direction of photography: Maite Redondo Gaztelu & Violeta Blasco Caño

For each project we gather different centripetal forces that join the collective to give life to the idea. This time we have had the help of:
Cast: Blanca García Lladó & Marc García Coté
Sound design: Adriano Mantova
How will we allocate your contributions?
We have already financed half of the project, taking on the rental of equipment during filming, expenses and transport costs. Now we need your help to finish the movie! We will allocate most of the budget collected to the postproduction, renting professional editing rooms, grading and audio mixing that enhance the quality of the raw material.
Another part of the raised funds will go towards distribution, thus facilitating the delivery of the short film to national and international festivals that we could hardly take on without your help. And finally, we make movies to be seen! that is why we want Anábasis to well reach the public, organizing presentations as a return in the places that have collaborated with us.
What happens if we exceed the objective?
We have worked hard to move the project forward; if we exceed the initial objective we will pay the actors, we will cover the rent of the borrowed equipment and we will pay the technical and creative team that has collaborated with us.
