The film, a drama dealing with domestic violence, opens in cinemas on the 22nd of November
Three years after the critical success of the disquieting Elisa K (an adaptation of the Lolita Bosch novel and co-directed with Judith Colell), the Barcelona-born film maker Jordi Cadena presents La Por (The Fear), a film based on another novel by the same author.
The film, which opens in cinemas on the 22nd of November, is an everyday drama about domestic violence. The protagonist is a sixteen-year-old boy who lives in fear of the recurring violence perpetrated by his father within the family home. Incapable of explaining what goes on at home to anyone, not even his girlfriend, his best friend or his teacher, all he thinks about is getting a job so that he can take his mother and sister away from the nightmare they are being forced to endure.
The film by Jordi Cadena, renowned in Catalonia for films such as La senyora, and És quan dormo que hi veig clar, was a participant in the official section of the last International Film Festival of Valladolid and stars Igor Szpakowski, Ramon Madaula, Roser Camí and Alícia Falcó.
