Ten twenty-year-old people. Five girls and five boys at the crucial point of their youth, when you start to make out adult life off in the distance. Pieces of life captured in short sequences, in different scenarios, and without following any narrative structure. Amanecidos rejects the traditional construction of a story, in it we find no approach, no climax, no outcome. It is cinema of the unexpected, that doesn’t allow the spectator to make plans. They are pages from an intimate diary or a photo album opened at random. They are memories that reach one’s head without warning. A film that palpitates with as much intensity as its young protagonists.
