Love is the curious emotion that can be both strong and fragile, all at the same time. A bond that seems unbreakable can suddenly bend when the circumstances around the union are changed. Can love survive distance? Can passion be sustained across continents? Co-writer and director Carlos Marques-Marcet explores those questions in “10,000 KM (Long Distance)” premiering at the SXSW Film Festival.
Natalia Tena and David Verdaguer play the couple at the center of the Spanish language drama, with the story following Barcelona based lovers Alexandra and Sergi, who put their relationship to the test when she accepts a residency in Los Angeles. And as you’ll see in this exclusive trailer, the pair maintain connected thanks to modern technology, but sometimes, not even Skype can substitute someone by your side sharing a meal, an outing or your bed.
“10,000 KM (Long Distance)” premieres at SXSW today. Watch below.
