Spanish / English with English subtitles | 85mins | India | Dir. Elías León Siminiani | with Elías León Siminiani.

A young Spanish director is fired from his job in television. Taking up his dream of making films, he travels to India hoping to make his first feature film and in the process retraces the journey made by his ex-girlfriend only to discover that his real investigation is not in India but in Madrid. However, when he gets home, things do not turn out exactly as he had expected...

Halfway between documentary and fiction, Mapa is a road movie in first person, as defined by its director, a 'movie-song'. Equally moving and wryly funny, Mapa is an evocation on how different lives can be in different halves of the globe.

It won Best Documentary at the Seville Film Festival and was nominated in the same category at Spain's prestigious Goya Awards.
