Alberto Martín Menacho
A village and its mountainous lands, in which legends and green oak trees cohabit. From
life to death, childhood to adulthood. A cycle that starts with the vultures and their rituals
and goes on with the learning of hunt, and the improbable return of a young woman. His work focuses on a specific territory, a region in Spain where he grew up and that he wants to dissect and re-mythologize: Extremadura. Beyond those territorial aspects, Alberto Martín Menacho explores the theme of youth for this first feature, currently in development: Antier noche. An ensemble cast movie, from winter to summer, whose action takes place during the last months of a greyhound’s life. On this background appears the story of four young adults, between heritage and division, leading to a reflexion on what builds us as individuals, what we keep or leave behind. Recently returned from a first phase of shooting, Alberto Martín Menacho will share with us a selection of the first sequences he shot.
