‘Sacred Spirit’, best Spanish film according to critics


After having forged a cult status as a short film, Chema Garcia Ibarra created in feature film with this surprising cocktail of costumbrista comedy with a touch of dark chronicle and Martian science fiction which, in addition, transforms the Elche de Carrús district into a (seemingly) impossible mix between Luxor and Area 51. An odyssey mystique who began his career with a special mention at Locarno and ended up winning the vote of the specialized critics summoned by FOTOGRAMAS. A whole cosmic conjunction that testifies to the air of revolution of a Spanish cinema that seeks to break the boundaries of conventional indie.
