Festival start: 09 December 2020      Festival end: 19 December 2020

The LA MIRADA TABÚ film festival wants to motivate artists and creators to show their view of the “taboo” concept, which is broad and diverse, encompassing from the dreams, the unconscious, the mental worlds and the ghosts that populate them , the mystery, the magic, even the untold reality, the unsaid, "the clothes hanging", in the workplace, emotional, family, vital ... from a vision as polyhedral as human thought is: casual, humorous, dramatic, dreamlike ... always from respect for all ways of thinking and from creativity.

LA MIRADA TABÚ launches an invitation to bring to light the personal and non-transferable world of each creator, which, as we have been able to verify throughout the history of art and cinema, through great names in world cinematography such as Luis Buñuel , Carlos Saura, Stanley Kubrick, Federico Fellini, Michelangelo Antonioni, David Lynch, Terrence Malick, Christopher Nolan, Julio Medem, Alejandro Amenábar ... connect with the deepest, most unknown and most ungraspable imaginary of viewers.
