FILM: THE (OTHER) 700 CLUB
Born in Alicante in 1992. His work seeks to capture the world through a personal language that explores and conveys his own generation’s emotions from a contemporary point of view.
Untitled Film #1 (2017), his first film, is a 27 minute hybrid short that was nominated and selected at several international festivals and awards. Over the last 5 years, he has directed and edited commercial, music video, editorial and video-art pieces for companies like Condé Nast, Royal Mountain Records or The Consulate of Spain in New York.
Araque Blanco is a Fulbright Grantee (2020-2022).
At the intersection of Broadway and Thornton St in Brooklyn, a loose community of delivery workers gathers every day to hang out and share their experiences while waiting for their next job. THE (OTHER) 700 CLUB opens the door to a microcosm of street philosophers that share their ideas about beliefs, goals and motivations. A reflection on the reality of the high speed capitalist system in which we are trapped, but at the same time keeps us moving in order to survive.
