Les amigues de l'Àgata

Laia Alabart, Alba Cros, Laura Rius, Marta Verheyen

Spain, 2015 - 70'

Growing up and changing or sticking with all-life friends. A generational portrait made just finishing the school.


Plot

Ágata starts college and new experiences arrive, but she doesn't want to lose contact with their lifelong friends. Step by step, their friendship is put to the test as they wander discos, parties, and flirts.

Four young filmmakers sign this naturalistic movie, which shows us the intimate landscapes of Ágata with a glance that reminds us of the first Cassavettes. A collective work of rare maturity for a college degree project, it was financed by crowdfunding and advised by referents such as Isaki Lacuesta or Elias León Siminiani. With its coral storytelling, the work becomes a generational portrait of urban feminine culture, such close and honest that it makes us feel we are sharing the same moments.
