"Every summer my family and myself would cycle along the banks of a different European river. Those rivers conditioned the way my childhood and that of my siblings progressed towards our youth. With Estrany riu I want to reflect on masculinity in brotherly relations. It is an investigation into the sexual awakenings of two siblings and the loss of the elder brother as a reference. The way I address cinema is by means of architecture and spaces. In this case, Estrany riu is developed based on the geography of the Danube. The river that starts out being no more than a stream and that widens at the same time as Dídac grows up".
