Description
Los ilusos films S.L. is an independent production company founded by Javier Lafuente and Jonás Trueba, following their experience producing Los ilusos (The Wishful Thinkers, 2013), a feature film which was filmed during the free time of a group of professionals and friends over a period of months, without any help or public funding, and distributed on an independent level throughout Spain and abroad. During its 12-day tour, Los exiliados románticos (The Romantic Exiles, 2015), done together with the same group of people (Marta Velasco -film editor-, Santiago Racaj -director of photography-, Miguel Ángel Rebollo -art director-, Laura Renau -costume designer-, along with other technicians and actors…) received several awards and mentions at the Spanish Film Festival in Malaga in 2015, the Jury Prize amongst others, and it was presented in an unusual tour “Solo en cines de verano” (Only in Open-air Summer Cinemas), before commencing its tour of the conventional film festivals. La reconquista (The Reconquest, 2016) competed in the official section at the San Sebastián International Film Festival and has received a number of awards in Spain and abroad. Towards the end of that year, the production company began the project titled Quién lo impide (Our Way), a cinematographic introduction to different teenagers, which is shown as a work in progress with no ending in sight. La virgen de agosto (The August Virgin) is Los ilusos Films new film, produced with the same values and following the same work philosophy, based on friendship and the pleasure of being together.
