A heist movie unlike any you’ve ever seen, La Distancia (The Distance) drops us into an alternate future/universe where people communicate via telepathy, possess telekinetic powers, and where a group of Russian dwarves are hired to steal a mysterious device known only as ‘The Distance’ from an isolated bunker. A nearly-remake of Tarkovsky’s Stalker, only with more jokes and added levitation, this is the visually spectacular, aurally monstrous vision of Sergio Caballero (Finisterrae), the co-director of Barcelona’s legendary Sonar festival. A comically surreal, utterly cinematic fantasy. Unmissable.   

Followed by a Q&A with cast and crew.
