Light Years Away by Edurne Rubio (Spain) – 60 mins

In complete darkness, Edurne Rubio transforms the audience into cave explorers for the night. Inspired by her father’s and uncles’ quest to map the caves of Ojo Guareña in Northern Spain during Francisco Franco’s regime; Light Years Away is a guided tour, a documentary without faces, a show lit with lanterns and projections. It is a journey in which everything that appears surprises, whether it be organic or inanimate, chronological or anachronistic, visible or invisible.
