ENG – Creative Documentary Film. Directed by Aïda Torrent
Marese , Tajin, Miquel and Jessica are about to start the most crucial year of their lives so far: their last year in highschool. They live in Raval, a charismatic neighbourhood in Barcelona with a complex social reality and huge cohabitation between cultures. For them, education is the only guarantee to social progress and better lifes.
Don’t Stop is a late adolescence choral portrait documentary, following a group of low class teenagers over a whole academic year. We will see their physical and psychological changes during the transition from childhood to adult age, showing their expectations, their efforts, failures and successes.
Don’t Stop talks about #adolescence, #immigration, #school failure, school drop out and also how #education is one of the only guarantees of social progress.
The film is an hybrid between documentary and fiction: the characters play in front of the camera certain real situations they have already lived in their recent past. The aim is to get into their most private and meaningful moments of the year and to shoot the documentary in a cinematographic way and look. We just recreate in front of the camera the same situation, in the same place and with the same characters.
NO T’ATURIS – DON’T STOP is a coproduction between Camille Zonca Produccions & TVC (Televisió de Catalunya)
