Returning to the Andalusian town of San Fernando twelve years after filming The Legend of Time (La leyenda del tiempo) (2006), Isaki Lacuesta’s Between Two Waters (Entre Dos Aguas) continues the story of two brothers on diverging paths, reunited after years apart. Scripted but filmed on location with a non-professional cast of San Fernando locals, the film blends narrative cinema with a non-fiction ethos to construct a portrait of life in a deeply troubled region, where violence and unemployment seem to deny all hope for salvation. A searing indictment of the systemic neglect of marginalised communities, Between Two Waters captures the desperation and frustrations of its characters with urgency and unblinking realism.
This screening is followed by a Q&A with director Isaki Lacuesta hosted by Maria Delgado, Professor & Director of Research at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London.
