At the end of last April, Un día cualquiera, starring the actress from Gasteiz, Ariane Gaisán, premiered at the Palm Beach International Film Festival. Some first steps for the feature film directed by José Teixeira that they followed on the other side of the Atlantic, with an award also included. The award was received within the framework of the Houston International Film Festival (WorldFest).
The competition awarded the production with a REMI Award, which awards the film as Best Suspense Film. As those responsible for the feature film will recall, WorldFest is one of the oldest film festivals in the world. Since the curtain went up, filmmakers like Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Ridley Scott, David Lynch, the Coen brothers, Brian De Palma, or Francis Ford Coppola have been awarded in this competition.
The festival aims to “recognize and honor outstanding creative excellence in film and video, to validate remarkable skill”. In its latest edition, it received more than 4,700 projects from 77 countries.
The film, which is awaiting the announcement of its theatrical release date while continuing to make promotional moves at festivals – without forgetting the ubiquitous social networks, as happens on Instagram with the profile @undiacualquierapelicula – is a psychological thriller starring a group of friends leaving the countryside. home for the weekend. But from there, anything is possible. “It’s a movie with many twists” despite being filmed in one place and told in 90 minutes, explains the actress from Vitória, who with this title faces her first leading role on the big screen.
“The biggest illusion is that people feel amazing at all times. It’s a completely different movie than we’re used to. Things happen all the time, and I hope viewers feel that the story hooks them, that they never have a second of disconnection or boredom,” the interpreter explains. “Within the fact that it’s such a thriller, because there are so few characters in a small space where so much happens, we hope that everyone who comes to see it will sympathize with us and think too, because there is an invitation to think,” he describes.
She and a large part of the team accompanied this presentation of the film on the other side of the Atlantic, although the team had already returned home again.
