Jorge Acebo Canedo

Girona, November 5th

Sala Truffaut (Cinemes Albéniz Plaça)


A film starring Francesc Garrido, with the debut of director Jorge Acebo

An exiled film director returns to the industrial city from which he had fled. He can stay there as long as he obeys the rules: any memories are unnecessary. Unable to adapt, he decides to flee along with the woman who he had also left behind. Occidente is a return to the past, a confrontation with the rat race and a reflection on the place we occupy in the present. An ode to inner freedom. Jorge Acebo Canedo’s début, which asks what happens to people when the truth they once believed in disappears.
