'All my wasps' is the title of the short film that is shot in the caravan district of Benablón, with a team of about twenty young professionals promising the film industry, along with locals who also participate in the recording, under the direction of Daria Gálvez Molteni.
The Councilor for Culture in the City of Caravaca de la Cruz, Juan Manuel de León, visited the filming of this project selected by the producer 'Escacfilms' to circulate during the coming months at the Spanish film author festivals.
De León explained that with this work "the director wants to pay a very special tribute to her grandmother and the summers she spent enjoying in the Caravaca de la Cruz camp."
The team involved in the project seeks to involve everyone who wants to be part of it through the platform 'VERKAMI', a patronage website that helps filmmakers.
Currently, 'All my wasps' has the support of the Department of Culture of the City of Caravaca, the Queen Desserts Group and other entities and people who have decided to support.
Something that, without a doubt, stands out from this shoot is that it is starred by the director's own grandmother, Amparo Roque, 86, and also by Caravaqueño neighbors, as a way to capture the soul of the place in the most realistic way.
"The short film narrates in the most poetic and dreamlike way possible a portrait of the elderly, of old age, the embrace of death, faith in the Caravaca Cross and the family love that everything can," says Daria Gálvez.
The director also explained that this is her final degree project at the 'Escola Superior de Cinema i Audiovisuals de Cataluña' and that â€œshe is born from all my summers in my grandmother's farmhouse Amparo. From her, as she is. From when we were children and the summer days were hours and hours to soak in the pool, those who preferred lemon poles to those of orange, choreographies on the 'hit' of that summer, how sacred it was to watch the soap opera late, the explorations at sunset through the fields and the thousand ghosts that lived in the house at night. Time passes and summers change. They change us. "

She lives in a vast farmhouse in the middle of the arid Murcian countryside with the oldest of her daughters. Summers pass, the family grows and visits diminish, too much space for only two people, Amparo's latent loneliness is joined by the constant waves of heat and old age.At time, all that love ended up giving it to the wasps that inhabit their lands.
