L’Alternativa 2022 – Cita ineludible

L’Alternativa 2022 – Cita ineludible

La programación de L’Alternativa, un certamen veterano de la escena audiovisual barcelonesa, vuelve a hermanar la sensibilidad política y la indagación formal. Las películas internacionales que se proyectan consiguen acceder muy raramente al circuito de los cines comerciales, y a menudo se vuelven invisibles una vez han cumplido su ciclo de vida en los festivales especializados.
