International Premiere 

Light Sensitive Ages / 
(Las edades sensibles a la luz)


Pedro Sara, Violeta Pagán

A group of teenagers and young people studying film decides to shoot a movie, and as if it were a negative, the essential aspects of their lives are revealed as they are exposed to the light of each shot. What they love and lose. From the first sequence, reality is imposed on the script they write, weaving a plot in which the documentary and fiction are diluted, revealing the creation and filming process, drawing a revealing and deep portrait of young people marked by migrations, gender violence, the search for sexuality, family or art.

The film takes place within the Dentro Cine School. A project by Cineteca Madrid.

Make movies to heal wounds is the motto behind a pioneering initiative carried out by a filmmaker and a psychotherapist.
Seek out the misunderstandings, prejudices, indefinitions and inaccuracies that hide behind the term "film school". Together we find meaning
