La última pieza (cm, 2021).
“La última pieza is a cry of rebellion and hope against absolutist regimes and the lack of freedoms. A political satire that balances the dramatic tension of a dystopian world with moderate comedy, seeking to ridicule the all-powerful state doctrine, the centralization of activities and the manipulation of the people. Although the basis of the film is social criticism, the paradox of the puzzle as the main conflict is intended to emphasize the humorous, absurd and uncomfortable tone. At the same time, the search for the piece represents a metaphor for all kinds of bureaucratic obstacles that hinder projects, dreams or justice. The last piece could be the first piece for change.”
