Delicate Balance

Documentary feature film written & directed by Guillermo García López.

83′

Three stories in three different continents intertwined in Delicate Balance: two Japanese executives in Tokyo whose lives are in the vicious cycle of working in corporations and consumerism, a sub Saharan community in the Gurugú Mount, near the Melilla border between Africa and Europe risk their lives every day trying to cross over to the First World; and families in Spain that are destroyed by the economical downturn, the real estate speculation, political corruption and being evicted of their homes as a result.

These stories are articulated through the words of José Mujica, former president of Uruguay, who throughout the documentary addresses universal issues that threaten humanity, questioning some of the foundations of the world in which we live.
