Description of the production company:
“Francesc Capdevila, Max, is a referent author of comics in Spain since the 70s. Always constantly experimenting. He combines humour, freshness, spontaneity and hooliganism, surrealism and philosophical reflections. Just as water comes out of the well, he says, from the shadows, the subconscious never lies. The documentary moves between the first and the third person, between fiction and documentary. We inhabit its cartoons and recognise a narrator labelled as a metaphysical humorist, philosopher, surrealist, irreverent. An animated world, the fruit of Max’s fantasy and subconscious, reinforced by Kiko Barrenengoa’s soundtrack”.
