Q&A with Victor Moreno

“Moreno’s underground city symphony takes us into an unknown world of darkness and glimmering activity. Deep below Madrid, tunnels of all sorts keep the city running; whether storm drains or subways or other subterranean systems, they’re the behind-the-scenes to urban living. In the mind’s eye, the film’s mesmerizing imagery echoes past trips through cinema, with Michael Glawogger, John Alton, Alien, and Dziga Vertov all harmonizing in the film’s DNA. Traveling through the tunnels (sometimes through tracking shots), the film’s camera-eye journeys from the abstract into the brutally concrete, with night-vision peeks at rats and even a cat, and workers on their rounds through the artificial night.” —Nicolas Rapold (Jan/Feb 2019 issue) U.S. Premiere
