Instituto Cervantes Albuquerque presents Contemporáneos en línea, an online showcase of recent work by young, independent Spanish filmmakers. The program brings together two feature films and two documentaries, demonstrating the creative coexistence of these genres in contemporary cinematography. It is presented in collaboration with the National Hispanic Cultural Center as part of the Bank of America Free Film Series.
In La mano invisible, set in a bare industrial warehouse, a group of workers, including a bricklayer, a butcher, a dressmaker, a telemarketer, a waiter, a warehouse worker, a mechanic, an IT worker, and a cleaner, meet daily, mechanically doing and undoing their work with apparent normality. In front of them, dozens of spectators watch the spectacle from the darkness, while an obscure demiurge pulls the strings behind the scenes. 2017; directed by David Macián; Spanish with English subtitles; 80 minutes; rated R.
