(lit. “That Feeling”), the shoot for which wrapped last week in Madrid. Each director filmed one of the interweaving storylines: a “virus of inconvenience” that, after it has infected people, makes them do and say things unintentionally, triggering an infectious chain reaction of clumsiness; a man bumps into his father again, who admits that he has found religion, and he then begins to follow him through the streets; and a woman begins a pathologically passionate relationship with street furniture.

(winner of the Sant Jordi Award for Best Spanish Film in 2013), his partners on this cinematic venture may require a brief introduction: 33-year-old Madrilenian Julián Génisson is the screenwriter, actor and director of Towards Bruce Lee’s Tomb, as well as being a member of the audiovisual collective Canódromo Abandonado. Meanwhile, Pablo Hernando (Vitoria-Gasteiz, 1986) is the director and screenwriter of short films such as Agustín del futuro and Magia, in addition to the features Cabás and Berserker [+see also:

). Cavestany is once again producing on a shoestring budget, but with bucketloads of audacity.

“There are already a couple of festivals (Mar del Plata and Abycine) that have shown an interest in the movie,” asserts Cavestany, “but we neither have a plan to exhibit it nor a distributor on the cards. The film is really out there, outside of everything; it’s pure handicraft, shot with minimal crew and like a co-operative, with everyone helping each other out: I’m really thrilled about Esa sensación because it’s simultaneously poetic and terrible, serious and jokey, searching for the unlikely beauty in the strange and the mundane.”
