The residents of ITA BERDUCIDO create a short documentary with the support of the FICBUEU team


The group has been working on the film since March through the film workshops of the FICBUEU Social Area.

In 2016, the Bueu festival carried out the creation of the FICBUEU Social Area, through which it directs its work towards disadvantaged or at-risk-of-exclusion groups, using cinema as a therapeutic, educational, visibility-enhancing, and integrating tool. This line has been in operation for eight years already, during which workshops and screening sessions were developed with numerous institutions such as the Príncipe Felipe Center, the Gypsy Secretariat Foundation of Vigo, ADICAM (Association of Diagnosed Breast Cancer Patients of Cangas), Xuntos Association for Down Syndrome in Pontevedra, or the Con Eles Association of Vilagarcía.

Last year, the Érguete Vigo and Juan XXIII Center in Cangas collectives were the beneficiaries of the activity, resulting in, on one hand, the short film titled “Sabía que vendrías”, in which actresses Arantxa Treus and Rocío Romero participated; and on the other hand, a science fiction and comedy piece called “A fin do osíxeno”, featuring actresses Mónica Caamaño, Anabel Budiño, and Sé Rial, actor Lois Soaxe, and Peter Punk as the main character.

In 2023, thel FICBUEU team developed a new short film creation workshop in collaboration with ITA Berducido for a period of two months, thanks to the funding from Obra Social La Caixa and Simei Global Consulting. On this occasion, the participants chose to create a documentary about Nieves Loperena, a resident of Gaxate (A Lama) and popularly known as “Tía Ni” (Auntie Ni).

In 2008, Nieves created “Mercado de la Tía Ni,” a bookshop and antique shop that also functions as a cultural space and meeting point, where she organizes various activities including talks, concerts, and flea markets. The location of Mercado de la Tía Ni is an old schoolhouse built in Castro de Gaxate, surrounded by a native forest area. During the summer months, there are hammocks and outdoor reading areas, as well as nighttime projections.

Ita Verducido Área Social FICBUEU

Near this location is ITA Berducido, where the participants of this short film workshop reside. It is a centre that provides a residential therapeutic program for teenagers with diverse behavioural issues. Over these months, six residents of the centre learned everything related to the process of creating an audiovisual piece through the different workshop sessions. They started with the initial idea and the script, went through preparation and pre-production, and concluded with the filming and subsequent editing of the film. All this behind-the-scenes work was carried out by the group members, with the support of ITA Berducido staff and three professionals from the FICBUEU team.

The final result, still in the process of editing and post-production, will premiere during the opening day of the 16th edition of the Bueu International Film Festival, which will take place on September 9th. The event will be attended by both the creators of the documentary, the protagonist, and the teaching team.

The film will be available to watch on the YouTube FICBUEU Channel, where the pieces created in the workshops of recent years, as well as other materials related to the festival and its activities, can be found.

The Bueu International Film Festival will present a spotlight on (LA)HORDE collective at the MARCO in Vigo


On Thursday, June 22, the FICBUEU will screen a session dedicated to the French collective (LA)HORDE at the MARCO in Vigo, free of charge. Entry is free-of-charge until seating capacity is reached

Bueu, June 7, de 2023 — The FICBUEU will organize an event this month of June featuring a unique screening session in collaboration with MARCO, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Vigo. The initiative aims to promote the short films of (LA)HORDE, an artistic collective founded in 2013 by Marine Brutti, Jonathan Debrouwer and Arthur Harel. 

Leading the Ballet National de Marseille since September 2019, this collective creates choreographic works, films, video installations, and performances, with the moving body as the central focus of their work. Through the interaction and juxtaposition of different mediums, they develop scenarios and actions that address radically contemporary themes and issues.

The session, with an approximate duration of 45 minutes, will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the Auditorium of MARCO in Vigo, with an introductory presentation by the FICBUEU team, providing an overview of the collective’s trajectory and body of work.

GHOSTS: a short film by (LA)HORDE with the National Ballet of Marseille, soundtrack by Rone and screenplay by Spike Jonze, filmed at the Palais Longchamp in Marseille. When the Museum of Fine Arts closes, the figures take over the deserted place, embracing and tearing each other apart, as if they wanted to reclaim their bodies… until they encounter the night guard.

A ROOM WITH A VIEW: in this music video, (LA)HORDE continues to explore ways of protesting and rebelling through dance. The video and motion capture allow the representation of the unimaginable, questioning physical relationships with the group with more violence and strangeness through possible collapses.

CULTES: this film captures a specific moment of the manifestation of worship, which translates into ritualized practices, behaviours, collective ecstasy, and mass consumption. Is the body, its excitement and celebration the stronghold for this mass consumption? Can this state transcend the uncritical space in which it unfolds?

NOVACÈRIES: a combination of film, performance, and homemade video that transcends dance films, presenting a choreographic and metaphysical portrait of the post-industrial world by reinterpreting post-internet dance.

The choice of (LA)HORDE as the protagonist for this screening is due to both the quality of their work and the regular presence of their short films in the Discoveries Section of the festival in recent editions. In September 2023, FICBUEU will celebrate its 16th edition from September 9th to 23rd, bringing a series of screenings and activities related to international cinema to Bueu once again.
