“An introspective journey through pain.” –El Cine En La Sombra

Meet Alberto García-Alix, the tattooed, gravelly-voiced rebel of Spanish photography. In this artfully crafted documentary, García-Alix speaks directly to the audience, exposing the details of his drug-addled past and aesthetic obsessions-from snapshots of motorcycle riders to portraits of his himself and his community of outsiders. With raw intimacy and exquisite black-and-white cinematography, The Shadow Line is imbued with the spirit of its subject.
