This year’s Underground Spirit laureates at European Film Festival Palić due their exceptional work in the field of independent cinema is a group of Spanish filmmakers Ion de Sosa, Chema Garcia Ibarra, Luis Lopez Carrasco, Miguel Llanso, Velasco Broca.

At the time World Economic Crisis struck Spain, leaving behind negative impacts on its cinema, group of directors based in Madrid found their way to make extraordinary films within minimal funds due to their huge creative strength. Linking point for these five authors was similarity in their style and themes while depicting the picture of contemporary Spain and experimenting with SF genre. Their futurism is apocalyptic allusion on modern society torn by demands of contemporary consumerism as a dominant system of values. Leaning on work of avant gardists Bunuel and Val del Omar, these five authors awakes rebel spirit of Spain by their brave, uncompromised and sobering films.
