Alba – Not Everyone Will Be Taken Into the Future


Starring /

An intense, intimate and beautiful journey into the mind of Alba, a 16-year-old ballet dancer at the acclaimed Corella Dance Academy in Barcelona. Her inner thoughts start to question the life she is leading, her lost adolescence, and her place in the world.

Director’s Statement

I was really wary of making a film that was a typical male director’s POV of how a teenage girl thinks. I was lucky enough to meet Alba, who is incredible emotionally articulate, perceptive and open. She wrote the voice over, guiding the film and understanding completely what story she wanted us to tell.
Thanks Alba.
