'End of the Century' is a LGTBQI+ drama set in the Spanish city of Barcelona. Ocho (Juan Barberini) is an Argentinian who has decided go to spend a few days holiday in the city. During his travels through Barcelona, he meets Javi (Ramon Pujol), and the two feel an immediate connection. The attraction between them lead them to share a passionate on-and-off relationship but everything changes between them when Javi reveals something important to Ocho: they have met before, a long time ago. 'End of the Century' revolves around the theme of love without restrictions or borders, and questions the space-time logics that govern our existence. After four short movies, 'End of the Century' is the first movie from the Argentinian filmmaker, Lucio Castro. Castro also writes the script. The film won Best Argentinian Picture at BAFICI (Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema) in Buenos Aires. It also was awarded in the Frameline of San Francisco and in the Outfest of Los Angeles. The film was shot in Barcelona with a Catalan presence in the technical and artistic team. The film stars Juan Barbeni ('El incendio'), Ramon Pujol ('Cita a ciegas', 'Doctor Mateo'), Mia Maestro ('Scandal', 'Nashville') and Helen Celia Castro-Wood in her debut on-camera role.
