In the Shadow of the Mountain is a short film which I produced. It is a graduation film from the Northern Film School and is written and directed by Neith Sentis.

Looking for a place to start a family, a couple arrives at an old village hidden in the Catalonian Pyrenees. The sole inhabitants, left there after the exodus of the young people to the cities, effusively welcome the new guests. The elder community is trying to find new members that are willing to stay and bring the place back to life again. They will have one last chance to change the tragic destiny of disappearing in the shadow of the mountain.
