PIFF 38: 10,000 KM

10-000-km

Sergi and Alex, a young couple in Barcelona, are ready to take their passionate affair to the next level when 10,000 kilometers suddenly come between them. Alex is offered a year-long, all-expenses-paid artist’s residency in Los Angeles. Sergi, hesitant at first, encourages Alex to follow her dream, leaving them with only one way to bridge the divide: digital. With Skype acting as their savior, we witness the happy, painful, and revelatory process of a long-distance relationship sustained-and reinvented-through the ether. 10,000 KM mediates our experience, as it does theirs, through texts, video chats, and social media updates, probing the nature of technology and connection while it chronicles the story of a young couple separated not only by distance, but also dreams and desires.

10,000 KM screens Sunday, February 8 at 1pm at Regal Fox Tower 10 and Wednesday, February 18 at 6pm at Cinema 21 as part of the 38th Portland International Film Festival.

Tickets are available online or at the door.


The Portland International Film Festival is sponsored by The Oregonian/OREGONLIVE, LAIKA, Regal Entertainment Group, Delta Airlines, Yelp!, Travel Portland, King Estate, Hotel Modera, The Autzen Foundation, The Lamb-Baldwin Foundation, KINK.fm, and many others.
