La Fábrica (the factory) is the latest independent documentary production. The main character is an old sugar factory on the Spanish coast that was dismantled in 1957. Now it’s nothing more than a ruin on a wasteland, overgrown with weeds and painted with graffiti. In the surrounding area a number of families are living of the land and conduct ecological forms of agriculture. In 2018 the owner of the land presented plans to convert the whole area into a golf course, and the factory into a hotel and restaurant.

About the factory and the persons linked to it, together with the rigorous building plans we are making a documentary. After the initial phase of research and preproduction, production will start in 2024.

” have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.”
