Last Days of Spring

La última primavera

Greek premiere

The inhabitants of an illegal shanty town on the outskirts of Madrid are faced with an eviction as the land they live on has been sold. Intertwining real-life characters and situations with made-up subplots, this hybrid blend of fiction and documentary casts a glance at the Gabarre-Mendoza family, outlining all its members’ reactions, which range from denial and despair to optimism and determination. A gripping tale of emotional dislocation that explores the everlasting bond between human beings and their surroundings.
