UK Premiere/ La Última primavera

Directed by Isabel Lamberti

In this compelling and engaging film, at the intersection of acting and reality, a family recreate the true story of their marginalisation and eviction from La Cañada Real, the largest shanty town in Europe, on the outskirts of Madrid. The Gabarre Mendoza family’s celebration of their grandson’s birthday is interrupted by a police inspection, and tensions between officials and inhabitants of the makeshift settlement arise. Each generation and member of the family responds in their own way to the crisis and transition process that threatens to break up their close-knit community, which is placed in conflict with a homogenising bureaucracy that struggles to absorb them. With an affirmed love for the cinema of ‘in-betweenness’, this is director Lamberti’s debut feature film.
