Quién lo impide

Who's Stopping Us
Jonás Trueba
Spain 2021
220min
OV w/ EN subtitles

The title of the film is a question without a question mark, a declaration of intent, a challenge. Over the course of five years, Jonás Trueba made a film with a group of teenagers without anyone stopping him. A film without a script, glued to the lives of those growing up in front of, alongside, and behind the camera and for whom he never wrote a single line of dialogue.
Inspired by a song by Rafael Berrio (“Si tienes quince años y pretendes escapar con eso basta y sobra para hacerlo”/“If you’re fifteen and planning your escape, that’s enough to do it”), Trueba accompanied them, rose to the task, and shot a film with them that is full of dreams, but not innocent, confident but not naïve; starry-eyed, with a sense that everything is possible.
Overflowing with energy, as only teenagers can be, overflowing with ideas and forms (documentary, fiction, testimony, interview?), QUIEN LO IMPIDE is a generational portrait in the here and now, but also a collective question, for viewers, for parents, for young people and adults: who are we, who do we want to be, as people and as a society? “Quién lo impide/nadie lo impide”: who’s going to stop it/nobody’s going to stop it.
(Gonzalo de Pedro Amatria)
