A profound reflexion of family break-up which focuses on the surroundings of young hustlers who live in the outskirts of the city. Arctic is a tribute to the “quinqui” films of the 80s - a cinematic genre that narrates the adventures of, often young, delinquents. This film, however, has been imbued with director Gabriel Velázquez’s current outlook, which is “markedly” personal. The film ran at international festivals such as those in San Sebastian, Valladolid, Gudalajara (Mexico), Chicago and Thessaloniki.
