Feature Film in Post-Production

Formerly known as ´The Boy and the Suit of Lights'


Borja and his younger brother are being raised in a small coastal town in Spain by their mother, who struggles to make ends meet, and patriarch grandfather, Matias, who pins his own unfulfilled dreams of becoming a professional bullfighter onto his grandchild, with the hopes that this future will raise the family out of poverty. But the reality of bullfighting today is not as grandfather remembers it.

Filmed over the course of five years, Sandcastles follows Borja as he comes of age oppressed by the weight of his family’s hopes and the lack of options for his own future outside of the customs and traditions of his home and his town.

Currently looking for post production funds- get in touch for sales/ distribution/ festival premieres

Film produced by Aconite Productions and Rustic Canyon Pictures with the support of Chicken and Egg Pictures and Screen Scotland.
