Director: Germán Izquierdo Valero. 2016, UK, 87min. A solid début feature for which we are delighted to host the world premiere. Think you want to live forever? Think again. Tourbillon is the story of Daniela, a woman who, due to a secret genetic modification, has not aged since her twenties. Under the strict control of a clandestine organisation that she calls her family, Daniela faces the decisive days of her endless life. A cerebral, and gentle character study. Shot by a female cinematographer it offers a refreshing contrast to the more ubiquitous male gaze and deftly explores the themes of alienation, empathy, and our need for human connection.
