Director Ramón Salazar

“When I finished writing it, I thought no one would dare produce it,” confesses a happy and excited Ramón Salazar during pre-production for his fourth feature, La enfermedad del domingo (lit. “Sunday Disease”), which is being backed by Paco Ramos, of Zeta Cinema. It will be a family drama revolving around two characters who hog virtually all the limelight during the running time, played by two hugely talented Spanish actresses: Susi Sánchez (a finalist for the Goya Award for Best Supporting Actress for Salazar’s previous film, 10.000 noches en ninguna parte [+see also:

As a matter of fact, the latter actress’ jam-packed work schedule has pushed back the shoot for La enfermedad del domingo from a planned window in autumn 2016 to February 2017. Filming will take place on both the French and Catalan sides of the Pyrenees, in Barcelona and Paris, “with a lot of woods and a touch of the city”, explains the Málaga-born filmmaker. “Never in my life have I had a film with a proper budget like this in my hands: it’s a lot more restrained than my previous movies. I’ve already had enough independence!” jokes the director of Stones and 20 Centimetres [+see also:

as he breaks down some of the key points in the film’s storyline, which is about a mother and daughter who are reunited after 30 years apart: “It will be a reunion with an element of surprise because there’s a very profound reason behind that abandonment.”
