Project

The script "Man and Days" ("Els homes i els dies") is based on the posthumous autofiction that David Vilaseca wrote between 1987 and 2010, before losing his life at the age of 45. The script focuses on a specific episode in David's life: before he turned 30, after reading a pioneering doctoral dissertation in queer studies at the University of London and putting an end a four-year relationship of infidelities, he decides to return to Barcelona, in full celebration of the Olympic Games. In Faberllull, I plan to tackle a first version of the script, strengthening the relationship between the three elements that define the character's psychology —family, writing, and sexuality— through which David interrogates his identity and begins a work of psychoanalysis that will obsess him all his life.
