WHAT DO WE WANT TO DO?
We want to make a film “Today like yesterday”, with the pupils from the Actors Worshop in Gijón with their teacher, Konchi Rodríguez as the director and with a script made up by different improvisation exercises.
A family must stay closed at home for a night due to an outer situation which will make them face much more than an uncomfortable situation. Curiously, this same situation happened to another family…50 years ago.
Two families, 16 characters, the same conflict… ¿one solution? Our characters have not much time to solve something that has nothing to do with eras: human feelings

This film starts in the Actors Workshop in Gijón, in November 2013. This year, our program was focused on the 60’s and American independent cinema. If there’s a referent for me in the way of making films this is John Cassavettes.
I thought about making an exercise that this director also made with his pupils. He made his first film with his pupils giving them base characters they should develop…After a while, “Shadows” was born.
Thinking about this, I started to write a possible script and in November I started to built the chatacters. We started the improvisation exercises and the creative process began. Our goal was to find just a place and a day to tell the story where the characters could grow, just like in the theatre. That’s how “TODAY LIKE YESTERDAY” was born.
