It is an exceptional opportunity to get together and be able to expose some of the challenges facing the cities where we come from and how we can move forward from our work as journalists, communicators and audiovisual producers.

CALL CONFESION
In a village in Catalonia, a hunter succumbs to his killer instinct and
inexplicably shoots two wildlife rangers he happens upon in an olive
grove. When he puts through a call to emergency services, he finds it
nearly impossible to articulate why he pulled the trigger.
In a village in the west of Catalonia, life goes on peacefully among the olive groves that surround the town. In the private hunting reserve on the outskirts of the city, it is common to see people who practice this activity on weekends. A man who is fond of hunting goes there with a group of friends. Minutes later, he makes a telephone call to the emergency service of the Generalitat de Catalunya; a woman answers the call. The Hunter, notably desperate, tries to tell the facts committed, the words collide with each other when he tries to pronounce them, on the other side of the phone the woman tries to spin the clumsy phrases said by the hunter.

— What are you expecting from the upcoming Media-Forum Dialogue of Cultures?
— Besides getting to know the beautiful city of St. Petersburg I hope to meet many professionals who have similar interests to mine. Specifically in the audiovisual production of documentaries and animation. In this way we could exchange our professional experiences and make new contacts.
— Have you ever been to Russia? What were your expectations before you visited this country?
— I have never visited Russia and I am very excited to be there for the first time, my expectations are many but I prefer not to get ahead of myself to make judgments and get to know its people and culture for the first time.
— What stereotypes about Russia do you know?
— I've heard sometimes about the weather which can be very cold but that doesn't worry me at all. I also think that its culture is very diverse and rich, as well as the different historical periods it has been through.
— What do you think of today's digitalization tendency?

—I believe that this is an important step that will allow different societies to agree to solve challenges that many countries share. This means that those of us who do journalism have our eyes wide open to be aware of the challenges of a fully digital society.
— What project are you going to shoot on the forum 'Dialogue of cultures"?
— I would like to record a series of shots inside the museum to explore the concept of absences in an audiovisual way.
— The situation imaged in your film is a random case or you were really interested in this situation? Was the film made in hot pursuit or this case attracted you after the long period of time?
— I usually review the information and news for most of the week, I try to watch the news from all over the world to "keep up to date" but I think that the current times are full of information and in some cases people suffer from the "infoxication" of both traditional and modern media and this can produce an effect of immunity towards some news content. It is common to forget the news of past weeks of new events that happen day by day, fading away to make room for new issues. A virtuous circle, of update and of forgetfulness.
I decided that this story for its characteristics and elements deserved to be told in another way, from another point of view in which this news were not inserted into the infinite torrent of information of twitter, nor into the rundown of a 24-hour television news program. I believe that by extracting a fact from the news environment, its transience is left aside, this can cause people to take a different interest in the news and from the author's point of view, to look at the components of the story and its development, and to generate their own reflections from the narrative presented in the documentary.
— Why didn't you focus the attention of your public on personalities of your characters?
— I preferred to concentrate the attention of the public in trying to know what was going on inside the head of the main character. And as this was something so cloudy I decided to accompany their confessions with drum rhythms in the soundtrack.
— Were the images of nature the real places, where the deal was happened?

— The images provided by the press (still photos) are of the place of the facts. The images recorded in video by us are close to the zone but not exactly in the place of the facts.
— How long did the filming take? Were there any difficulties during the filming process? How did you overcome them?
— The filming took about 20 days. Every film carries a series of difficulties, the most complicated had to do with being able to carry out the film with reduced economic resources. and on the other hand how to tell a story that was told many times on television news differently in our film.
