Isabel Lamberti’s acclaimed short film Volando voy
(2015) followed the life of David Gabarre Jiménez, a resident of Madrid’s Cañada Real shantytown. In Lamberti’s first feature film Gabarre Jiménez returns with members of his extended family to recreate the ordeal of being evicted from their homes. This incredibly well acted and sharply edited exercise in docu-fiction captures the painful transition of a loving family and the fracturing of a tight-knit community. Last Days of Spring
offers a memorable glimpse into a way of life rarely seen on screen.
Isabel Lamberti grew up in Spain and the Netherlands. Her short films Volando voy (2015), Amor (2017) and Father (2019) have won awards at many international film festivals.
