David González Rudiez‘s second feature film ARDER will be premiered in the upcoming 50th International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia (Sitges) in the competitive Noves Visions Section.
Noves Visions seeks, since 2003, those films where the fantastic genre meets the most transgressive experimentation, becoming one of the Festival’s most daring sections.
ARDER, written and directed by David González Rudiez, is a silent movie with no musical accompaniment that tells the story of a man’s journey into darkness.

Madrid. Nearby the M30. A nameless man goes tirelessly against the current of the constant traffic. In one pocket he has a map. In the other, several charms like a broken compass, a powerful die, a magic stone, and a coin cell battery that always reflects the full moon.
The night. The journey. The devil. A flute and a tune.
A beginning and an ending.
