After consolidating itself as a tourist destination in the mid-1960s, the small coastal town of Hospitalet de l’Infant has become a dormitory town for workers at the nearby nuclear power station. Drawn by neoliberal promises of prosperity and a better life, many workers moved here to work at the new power station. A growing sense of collective unease and long silences broken only by strong gusts of wind shape the landscape of a town now utterly dependent on the power station for its survival.
Marc Luguera (Sitges, 1997) graduated in film and audiovisual media from ESCAC and specialised in nonfiction. His sharp critical and political approach to the visual arts, with a healthy dash of irony and sarcasm, can be seen in his debut film, Con vistas al mar. This short documentary not only paints a portrait of a coastal town, but also offers a biting critique of a neoliberal model that will eventually engulf the whole municipality.
