“We all need, at some time, a second origin. This statement is a metaphor of life and the current moment”
After Bigas Luna died, Carles Porta, executive producer and co-writer together with Bigas Luna himself and Carmen Chaves, decided to take over the direction of Second Origen. Is there any better way to pay tribute to one of the great masters of Spanish cinema than by completing the film that he wanted to dedicate to his grandson?
“Everybody agrees that Second Origin is a very current and relevant story. At a time when everything depends upon economic results, our story focuses on values such as love, altruism and effort. Our main characters find themselves in a devastated world without anyone to help them. They must start from scratch, every day, and never give up.”
