New cinema from Spain

Invisibles / Javier Corcuera, Wim Wenders, Mariano Barroso, Isabel Coixet, Fernando Leόn de Aranoa

This is a story of stories. It’s an acknowledgment of those many of us have cast to the back of our minds (if we’ve ever heard of them in the first place) and a desire to give voice to those who have been silenced by our indifference. It is also a modest tribute to those who never looked the other way.Above all, it represents the intention of five influential directors to make these unique, real-life protagonists visible – to bring to light those stories we do not see because we prefer to believe that they do not exist.A documentary produced by Javier Bardem and shot by 5 renowned directors: Mariano Barroso (Bianca’s Dream), Isabel Coixet (Letters to Nora), Javier Corcuera (The Voice of the Stones), Fernando Leόn de Aranoa (Good Night, Ouma) and Wim Wenders (Invisible Crimes), focusing on 5 forgotten humanitarian causes that Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières-MSF) want to bring attention to.
