FICBUEU and Juan XXIII Association record the short film ‘A fin do osíxeno’

FICBUEU

Both institutions have been working on the movie since January through the film workshops of the FICBUEU Social Area.

The film will premiere on September 11 during the opening day of the festival.

The team from the Social Area of the FICBUEU and the Juan XXIII Association of Cangas, an occupational center for people with intellectual disabilities, recorded a short film as a result of long work in one of the film workshops, which began last January.

During these months, the users of the center learned everything related to the process of creating an audiovisual piece, starting from the creation of the story and the script and ending with the entire preparation and production process prior to filming.

Therefore, all that was needed was to put everything learned into practice during the filming. The session lasted approximately nine hours. Twenty people participated in it, among whom were well-known actresses and actors such as Mónica Caamaño or Lois Soaxe.

All the work has been carried out by members of the center from different towns in Pontevedra, such as Cangas, Moaña and Bueu, although they had the support of the Juan XXIII monitors and the FICBUEU team.

The environmental-themed fiction short film is entitled ‘A fin do osíxeno’ and was recorded in different locations, such as the Association’s own headquarters or the castle of the forest of Aldan.

The final result, still with a lot to work on in the editing and post-production section, will be premiered during the opening day of the Bueu International Film Festival, which will take place on September 11.

This is the second film of the 2021/22 academic year launched through the short film workshops of the FICBUEU Social Area, after the one made in conjunction with the Association Érguete from Vigo, in an initiative that seeks to bring cinema closer to groups and sectors further away from audiovisual creation.

Once premiered, the work can be seen on the festival’s YouTube channel, where most of the works carried out so far can be found.
