El Planeta Film Companion
Premiering in 2021, artist and filmmaker Amalia Ulman’s debut feature film, El Planeta, is a dark comedy shot in her hometown of Gijón in Asturias, Spain. Set just after the devastation of the last financial crisis, the film explores the trials of contemporary poverty, female desire, and the complicated filial relationships between mothers and daughters, about to get evicted. This book documents the time spent in Gijón, including essays, interviews and a pull-out poster by Leomi Leon Sadler & Min Ji Son.
