Alberto García-Alix. The Shadow Line
- Nicolás Combarro
“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.
U.S. Premiere. Filmmakers scheduled to attend.
Special GuestsScheduled to attend: Director Nicolás Combarro and producer Miguel Angel Delgado
