UAB students awarded at the DocsBarcelona festival for their short "Les més grans"
Les més grans, a master's dissertation by students of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona Núria Ubach, Marta Codesino, Dubi Cano and Ulrika Andersson, was awarded a special mention by the jury of the Festival DocsBarcelona.
The directors are students of the master's degree in Theory and Practice of Creative Documentary Filmmaking at the UAB. The short film aims to show the life of older people living in Cabrianes, in the Catalan region of Bages, and tells the story of the elderly people of the village by filming the walks of Remei Mas, 94 years old and Núria Ubach's grandmother, and her friends. During the filming, Adelaida Roqueta dies. For this reason, her funeral is part of the documentary, which also shows other characters such as Pilar Comaposada, Casiano de la Rosa and Enric Finestres, as well as scenes from the town festival.
During its more than twenty years of existence, the master's degree in Theory and Practice of Creative Documentary Film of the UAB has focused on training students in a line of responsible experimentation and profound and transcendent creativity, while opening up lines of research in a new aesthetic for the new times and in alliance with various institutions, film festivals and art and culture centres. Among others, the master's degree is focused on professional opportunities in the field of non-fiction film direction and production: development of the defined roles of director, producer, scriptwriter, sound technician, director of photography, or editor.
