La ciudad oculta / The Hidden City Programme 2020

by Víctor Moreno Documentary Competition

The secret life of every big city takes place underneath; in the tunnels of the subway and other dark shafts of the supply network that lie beneath our feet. LA CIUDAD OCULTA takes us on a fascinating yet abysmal journey below the city of Madrid. Accompanied by a gentle lapping sound, we are thrown into a strange and yet familiar realm – to a place
that is entirely crafted by human hand and yet completely dehumanised. Following canals, tracks and conduits, this film opens the door to a closed space within a symbolic sphere: the city’s subconscious. With a virtuosic interplay between strangely beautiful imagery and stimulating sounds, director Víctor Moreno has created an oppressively beautiful big-screen film with an atmosphere that oscillates between sci-fi and horror. An experience that completely realigns our view of the city.
