); and El debate, a political film about the confrontation between two Spanish leaders in 1993, by the Mallorcan David Ordinas.

The documentary section will feature Les culpables, by Marta Durán, which tackles the taboo subject of clandestine abortions performed by teenagers; ¿Es usted secuestrable? a reflection on the credibility of memories, by the Mallorcan Carlota Bujosa; Eñaut Zuazo, by Meritxell Valls, based on the script written by the comedian who gives the film its title; Los poetas errantes, by Belén Verdugo, centred on the exile of the writers Robert Graves and Laura Riding on the island of Mallorca, with a script by Miguel Ángel Morales and the collaboration of Julia Menéndez Quílez; Lionel, by Carlos Saiz, a road trip movie fuelled with parent-child drama; and Rafael Marín, una deuda cultural, by Borja Moreno, which vindicates the figure of the unknown sculptor from Granada, with script and editing by Jesús Martínez Torres.

And, finally, the Work in Progress section features: Daytona, an experimental fiction by Carmen Pedrero; Samsara, an immersion in the Buddhist cycle of death and reincarnation, filmed in Zanzibar by the Vigo filmmaker Lois Patiño; 21, a drama of a sentimental erosion in times of OnlyFans, by Néstor Ruiz Medina (director of the short film Baraka), with a script by the Sevillian actress María Lázaro; María y la película olvidada, by Marta Herrero and Nuria Abad, research by a pioneer in the early days of sound films; Negu Hurbilak, an experimental work by the Negu Collective (made up of Ekain Albite, Adrià Roca, Nicolau Mallofré and Mikel Ibarguren, all of them former students of the ESCAC in Barcelona); and Remember My Name, by Elena Molina, which tackles the conflicts of immigration.
