The Hidden City

Nayra Sanz Fuentes is Co-writer and Co-producer of The Hidden City.

Synopsis

The technical dream, deployed towards the exploration of space, has also motivated an inverse movement: the opening of a subterranean world. Beneath the modern city there lies an immense spider’s web that sits beneath the visible city dependent on it; a functional and essential space that also serves as a symbolic, hidden sphere: the unconscious of the city.
