Fausto 5.0

Directed by Isidro Ortiz & Àlex Ollé & Carlos Padrissa

The internationally acclaimed, innovative Catalan performance group La Fura dels Baus turn their hand to feature filmmaking with this bold, futuristictake on the Faust legend. Scripted by Fernando León de Aranoa, it follows the world-weary Dr. Faust (Sola) who encounters his past and future when he attends a Barcelona conference on terminal illness. There he meets Santos(Fernández, nominated for a Best Actor Goya) a miraculously surviving former patient who takes him on a voyage into the dark side of the city and his own soul, echoed by a breathtaking melange of sonic and visual imagery that perfectly mirrors the doctor’s developing disorientation.
