Death at Torrevieja

Death at Torrevieja

Adriana Arriata
Death at Torrevieja is a portrait of a stuck Spain, living on the daily and looking for easy money, working to attract and serve tourists, getting trapped in a vicious cycle of fast income in the summer and financial drought in the winter. Chetia thinks she’s the queen of Torrevieja, a NEET that makes money scamming tourists in illegal balconing bets, but her reality is far more difficult when she gets home: she has to take care of her son, Yeray, a kid she felt forced to have and that Bes her to a city that’s consuming her and that she tries to escape desperately.
Adriana Arratia was born in Caracas in July 1999. She emigrated to Spain at a young age and bouncing from city to city, she discovered her passion for telling the stories of the people she knows. He studied at ESCAC (Escola Superior de Cinema i Audiovisuals de Catalunya) and forged a fascination and love for quinqui cinema that she decided to capture in the short film Death in Torrevieja.
