A Shadow on my Path

Vicky comes back to Barcelona, the city where she was born, and where as a girl she spent happy holidays with her father. Now it seems that Barcelona is bringing back too many memories for one day, and that's why she won't leave Barcelona until she has visited her father's grave.

Director Biography - Sergi Rubió

With a filmography dating back to 1993, at a mere 15 years of age during the height of his adolescence, and having grown up as avid fan of the movie genre, his Super 8 camera has always been his mode of expression, like a pair of prescription lenses allowing him to see the world and, without question, a means to share and express it all. In an era of analog format for video, Sergi always chose to shoot in celluloid, a choice he continues to defend to this day with the arrival of digital film.

Director Statement

His body of work is often created with melodrama as its' backdrop, filled with visual portraits of environment and moods, almost always without following the accepted classic structure of a script by elaborating and then assembling brief sequences like pieces to a handmade puzzle inside of which impossible romances, farewells and open endings have all proven to be recurring themes in the various works of this filmmaker.

The parallel phase of his career as a filmmaker reflects his work creating documentaries. Starting off with a simple interview, each project quickly becomes a catalyst for an explosion of seemingly unconnected ideas. Only during production and later during post-production do they slowly find their place in the form of a script.
