Xtrems is a film based on real events about addictions to alcohol and narcotic substances that we shot in 2008 with the sole objective of helping people who have found themselves in similar problems, with the clear message that addiction, if you want, has solution. The plot of the film is born from the conversations that the actors had with the witnesses to be able to interpret them. Here is a summary of the conversations that the actors had with their witnesses who, as we also do in the film, remain anonymous and it is the main actors themselves who put a face on it, everything they speak was used as inspiration during filming. If you want to see the film you will find it on the Filmin platform, I will give you the link.
Xtrems is a film based on real events, where fiction is put at the service of reality to show us the hell of lives that have been broken. From actual testimonial statements, a series of stories evolve in an interwoven way. Actors, characters and protagonists explain, in work in progress format, a series of “extreme” experiences that teach viewers what it means to fall and survive. The limits between reality and fiction disappear and they feed themselves to show us the excesses of apparently normal double lives. Stories full of humanity, errors, conflicts and confessions that force us to reflect.
It received 11 nominations for the Gaudí Awards and has been selected and screened in many countries and festivals.
