Los no lugares (The non-places) is a shortfilm that is born as the Bachelor Final Project of four Audiovisual Communication students from the Pompeu Fabra University. It is a story about changes and our fear of them, about the influence the places where we grew up have on us, and how the people we surround ourselves with condition our past and our future.

Muna has always dreamed of being a photographer. The summer has just started and her dream is about to come true, but she is running out of time to face what she has been putting off: saying goodbye to her friends and to the promises they made in the place where they grew up.

Muna, Litus, Aziz and Ale are a group of four friends that have known each other since they were little.

The story is situated in the northeast periphery of Barcelona, in the neighbourhoods of El Besòs and the municipalities of Sant Adrià del Besòs, Santa Coloma de Gramenet and Badalona.

These are urban areas resulting from the gentrification process of the last decades, which constantly struggle to maintain their identity and neighbourhood community; and have often been stigmatised when portrayed in the media.

These places are of big importance for the story, given that our main character struggles between wanting, and not wanting the same time, to get away from them because they remind her of those childhood and adolescence memories. That "non-place" is actually her personal situation, a transit space between two moments and two places.

We are four friends and classmates, with really different cinema tastes, but united by the movie Columbus (Kogonada, 2017).

Èlia Boqueras, Direction and Screenplay.

Passionate about Before Sunrise, secretly a blogger, and a cheesecake lover. Assistant director at Globomedia (part of The Mediapro Studio) in series like Estoy Vivo on TVE. Assistant director of the shortfilm El Banquete (2018) and the documentary Pasión Sho*w (2018). Director of the documentary FOUND (2019) and the advertising campaign #Ponteensupiel (2017). She studied for a year in Ireland, at University College Cork, where she specialised in Media Studies and Theater and Performative Arts. She actually wants to be an actress, but here we are.

Alicia Corpas, Direction of Photography and Screenplay.

Passionate about Wong Kar-Wai's movies, self declared backpacker traveler and beer pong lover. She is the director of the shortfilm El Banquete (2018), the documentary Amitabha (2017) and the advertising campaign #Ponteensupiel (2017). She has worked as a production intern in Mallerich Films. Her interest in environmental issues led her to study at The Danish School of Media and Journalism, in Denmark. To be honest, she actually wanted to make a roadmovie, but then she felt her neighbourhood call.

Laura Flores, Director of Production and Editing.

Passionate about The Miserables, the musical theatre and festivals lover. She has worked as a production and distribution intern in Magrana Arts & Media. She is currently part of the Communication team in Secretariat of Entities of Sants, Hostafrancs and La Bordeta. She has worked as a script supervisor in the pilot episode of Blanc Trencat (2019) and as an editor in the shortfilm El Banquete (2018). To be honest, her life could be a musical comedy, but it is actually a drama.

Mari Contreras, Art Director and Editing.

Passionate about Alice in the cities, addicted to sweets and lover of many music bands you have never heard of. She has worked as a production intern and cultural manager in Allegra Films. She has been part of the art team of the shortfilm El Banquete (2018) and the pilot episode of Blanc Trencat (2019), where she also worked as a sound assistant. She is currently taking part on a social mentoring project named enTàndem, driven by AFEV. To be honest, she hasn't done much more so far, but she is happy anyways.

We also have the support of some cultural associations and organizations from the neighbourhoods where our shortfilm is located. For instance civic centers, youth assemblies, etc.

Contributions go from €5 to €1.000, with rewards that are both physical (photographs, posters, etc.) and experiential (tour around the film locations, the possibility to appear in our shortfilm, etc.).

The experiential rewards will be given preferably between May and June 2020, since we cannot guarantee our availability after those dates. In the same way, the physical rewards will be sent during the month of September 2020, since we need some time to finish the post-production of the project.

The premiere of the film is planned to be in September 2020 in Barcelona, although this date may vary, depending on the distribution of the film.

It's important to add that all the patrons will receive a viewing link to the short film, once its distribution by different circuits is finished.
