|SPECIAL SCREENINGS - AINARA VERA / VICTOR KOSSAKOVSKY|
Direction: Ainara Vera, Victor Kossakovsky
Is there such a thing as Spanish identity? What truly concerns Spanish people? What are the foundations of the modern Spanish state ruled by higher law? Just as the ceremony to proclaim Felipe VI king was beginning, filmmakers also began filming in a run-of-the-mill street in his kingdom, in the city of Pamplona. The solemnity of the ceremony – which we hear off screen – contrasts with the spontaneity of the passers-by. The words of the monarch overlap with the conversations held with citizens, more concerned about the defeat of the Spanish football team the previous night than with the proclamation of the new king. Filmic and real time keep pace here to document a historic moment. Mira, mi rey is the first part of a trilogy that will culminate with the end of Felipe VI’s monarchy.
