ExtraLife (Hdv, 2013, 96', ProRes .mov 1080p / Blu-Ray)

"The novel depicts characters challenging their hopes and ideas, trying to find a solution
for countless contradictions (...) In this book, political positions are not assumed in advance,
they must be deduced from the amount of all the questions, doubts and contradictions".

Peter Weiss' The Aesthetics of Resistance meets a General Strike in Barcelona on
september 2010. That night's discussions will be put into question by five anonymous
friends who are no longer adolescents nor communist militants and yet also try to
oppose the state of things, as did the protagonists of Weiss's novel.
