No one knows how it really started… Some say it was because of the crisis, the disgust, the unemployment, the hunger… Others think it was because a conspiracy, because those few little black hands that pull the strings were bored and wanted to play.
And me? I just think it was the time to break the rules, to stop this fuckin’ big wheel fed with our pain and our condescendence.
—Lay, a survivor
The short film, starring Javier Server, Fernando Cayo and Ramón Quesada, takes place in Madrid in 2030, a city ravaged by the fight between governments and citizens, where one member of the resistance has got a mysterious device that can finally end the war. Will he escape from the drones that guard the city?
Destroy Madrid is a collaborative project made with no grants and no external funding. It’s an action/sci-fi/political short film that at the same time, works as a proof-of-concept that is expected to be explored in a feature film, which screenplay I have already written.
