Una Hora, Un Paso
di Aitor Iturizza / Bermat Gual – 14 min – Spain – fic
Shot as a mockumentary, ‘Una Hora un Paso’ tells the story of Juan’s last day on this world. Juan’s been in Death Row for the past 17 years in Egypt for trafficking heroine. In this time, Juan’s written two books of poems, got married, had a daughter and still has hope for his return to Spain. Through the testimonies of a secretary of the embassy, his wife and the journalist who made the documentary, we’ll get to know Juan’s miseries and hopes in his everyday life. What Juan doesn’t know is that while he’s giving the interview Egyptian authorities are planning his execution.
