10.000 km

Carlos Marques-Marcet

Spain, 2014 - 99'

Love, dislike, realism, and proximity are the secret weapon of a long-distance love story. Just the modern times.


Plot

Alexandra and Sergi are a couple from Barcelona. They were thinking about having kids when she receives an irrefutable professional offer from LA for a year. Trusting the strength of their relationship, they decided to postpone the plans and face the challenge of the 10,000 km that take them apart. With natural storytelling, charismatic characters and dynamic editing, 10,000 km shows with witty honesty little details of nowadays life, updating suddenly the classic ‘Boys meets girl’ from a contemporary, direct and accomplice with the audience perspective.

A film that proved that young European cinema has no borders and digital life was here already.
