THE ENDLESS TRENCH, Spain’s contender at the Oscars®
3 November, 2020
THE ENDLESS TRENCH (La Trinchera Infinita) has been selected as Spain’s entry for the 93rd edition of the Oscars®!
From the team behind Handia (Giant) and Loreak (Flowers) comes this postwar drama, winner of 2 Spanish Academy’s Goya Award and of the Silver Shell for Best Director and the Jury Prize for Best Screenplay at San Sebastián ’19.
THE ENDLESS TRENCH is based on the life of republican Manuel Cortés, who, at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in 1936, hides to save his life in a hole underneath his house and with his wife’s help. Little did they suspect that he wouldn’t be able to come out until 30 years later.
The Oscars® shortlists announcement will take place on February 9, 2021.
