An Argentinian man from New York and a Spanish man from Berlin hook up by chance while in Barcelona. What seems like a one-night encounter between two strangers becomes an epic, decades-spanning relationship, in which time and space refuse to play by the rules.
Lucio Castro (Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1975), after graduating from Centro de Experimentación Cinematográfica (C.I.C.), moved to New York in 2000 to pursue second degree at Parsons School of Design. He has been working as a menswear designer and making short films since then. His latest short film Trust Issues (2017) was presented at the Cannes Film Festival 2018. Fin de siglo (2018) is his debut feature.

“I started writing End of the Century with the curiosity to confront a character in the present with the same character twenty years ago. The things that remained the same, the things that changed, the things that he forgot he wanted.”
