Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Friday, March 31, 2017. Canarias Cinema, the festival’s section screening the selection of regional film production, continues on Saturday, April 1, with the presentation of its competing titles: two showings of feature films La forma del mundo (David San Ginés, Spain, 2017, 123 min.) and Fogueo (David Sainz, Spain, 2016, 110 min.), and the first short film screening with six of the twelve selected titles, at 5 p.m.
David Delgado San Ginés, a regular director in the Canarias Cinema section, is the autor of the first feature of the day, La forma del mundo, a story that delves into the roots of a ritual performed in Gran Canaria by Arbejales’ folk singers, the voices that sing for the souls in purgatory. The screening of his film will be at 9:30 a.m. and at 7 p.m. at the Monopol’s screen 2.
At noon and 9:45 p.m., David Sainz’s last title, Fogueo, will be screened at the Monopol’s screen 2, too. This film by the author of Malviviendo tells the story of two young losers, Dante and Damián, who decide to bet it all to fulfill their wishes: one of them, making a film, the other one, becoming a drug dealer.
Canarias Cinema also gives us on Saturday the first screening of its competing short films, which includes Concoct or Wander (Lila Organa, Spain, 2016, 6 min.), The Landing (David Pantaleón, Spain, 2016, 4 min.), Icelands (Miguel Ángel Mejías, Spain, 2016, 12 min.), The Campaign (Macu Machín, Spain, 2017, 8 min.) Burning Mountains that Spew Flame (S. Delgado, H. Girón, Spain, 2017, 14 min.) and Shipwrecked (Iván López, Spain, 2016, 7 min.).
