THE ISLAND INSIDE (LA ISLA INTERIOR)
Dunia Ayaso & Félix Sabroso

Three siblings on the run from themselves. Martin (Alberto San Juan) wants to leave home and become a writer in Paris. Gracia (Cristina Marcos) wants to put some reality back into the fictional world that her life has become. Coral (Candela Peña) just wants to be loved. The sudden death of their father forces them to leave the inner island which isolates them from their loved ones, from their dreams … and from being themselves. A superb psicodrama by the camp filmmaker combo Dunia Ayaso and Félix Sabroso, with performances by the most renowed independent actors working today.
