Project

I will be working on the project titled Entre la pedra i el martell, together with Yousra Touri El Mansouri. Entre la pedra i el martell tells the story of Pol Khaled, a boy from Ripoll who is around 20 years old, with a Moroccan father and a Catalan mother, and a complex identity. Set in 2017, the film focuses on specific events that invite us to reflect on the nature of the attacks that took place that same year in Barcelona and Cambrils. Our motivation stems from wanting to make a film that, without passing judgement, prompts the audience to question certain things and thus helps build bridges.
