Bigas Luna

A life devoted to cinema

“Second Origen is the magnificent opportunity to start again. A game and at the same time an impressive adventure”
In each of his films, Bigas Luna gave us his personal vision to tell stories. Unforgettable titles such as Jamón, jamón, Bilbao or La teta y la luna are just a few of his most memorable “gifts”. Well-established actors today, such as Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz, were discovered by this genius who was so skilled in detecting raw talent.

Through his splendid vision and thanks to his eagerness to explore the most human instincts, the story of Alba and Dídac takes on a global and intimate dimension.
“Adapting Manuel de Pedrolo’s “Second Origin Typescript” is, for any scriptwriter, both a challenge and an honour. Narrating the development of a love story between a boy of 10 and a girl of 20, the only survivors on the planet after an apparent planetary attack, enables me to analyse and show the most sensual, luminous and amusing mechanisms that can be found in a relationship created between two young people who have to learn everything in order to survive.”
