END OF THE CENTURY
FIN DE SIGLODirected by Lucio Castro
Cast: Juan Barberini, Ramón Pujol, Mía Maestro
In the age of Grindr and PrEP, a handsome Argentinian poet invites an attractive stranger to his apartment while cruising the streets of Barcelona. After a steamy one-night stand, a deeper connection — one that began 20 years earlier — reveals itself between the two men. Director Lucio Castro constructs a beautiful, sensual romance in which memory, desire, and reality splinter into many playful and melancholic timelines, examining the multiple ways love and sex can transform a relationship.
Lucio Castro was born in 1975 in Buenos Aires. In 2000, after graduating from Centro de Experimentacion Cinematografica (C.I.C.), he moved to New York to pursue a second degree at Parsons School of Design. He has been working as a menswear designer and making short films since then. His latest short film Trust Issues was presented at the Cannes Film Festival 2018. End of the Century (Fin de siglo) is his debut feature.
