Synopsis

A reflective account on the life and work of Catalonian filmmaker Josep Torella i Pineda. This documentary, shot from the perspective of a young, filmmaking ingenue, lends itself to gently initiate the spectator from the life and work of the man into a revealing look at his career not merely as a filmmaker and angry writer but also as Josep Torella the friend, husband, confidant and patriarch as told by those closest to him.
