- About the festival
Destello bravío follows Isa, Cita and other women trying to break out of their static lives. A group of ladies lunch and gossip. Old María mourns her deceased husband, Paco. Sometimes, someone hears a sound that escapes everyone else. Female lusts flare up, whether stimulated by home-baked sweet treats or not. Everything sounds different at night and in the early hours of the morning.
This highly original drama often looks like a documentary, but also takes inspiration from surrealism and magic realism. Using non-professional actors, a very special, disruptive electronic soundtrack and suggestive camerawork, Destello bravío proves that even the everyday can be exceptional.
“Unclassifiable debut film. An unsuspected cross between anthropological documentary and a certain avant-garde cinema.”
