Francesc Capdevila, aka Max, is a comic book author and artist who has been renowned in Spain since the 1970s. His work melds humour, freshness, spontaneity, anarchy, surrealism, and philosophical reflection. Between fiction and reality, conscious and unconscious, Max’s working method and understanding of the world — the bright side and the darker side — are the focus of this film. An original and innovative look at the ninth art” through an engaged, environmentally aware, and subversive artist, and reflecting on a career spanning over 40 years, this documentary explores Max’s comic strips and illustrations, including those for The New Yorker, and sheds light on his deep interest in fantasy and mythology.

Cesc Mulet (Inca, Mallorca- 1957): I’m a documentaries’ producer and director. In my company LA PERIFÈRICA PRODUCCIONS I work for TVE, TV3 and IB3. Although his career in the world of cinema has been particularly prolific (he has worked with Álex de la Iglesia, Manolo Iborra, Enrique Urbizu,…), it has been in the field of creative documentaries that he has managed to become one of the most unique voices on the Spanish scene. In recent years he has written, produced and directed more than twenty projects for the main operators in the Spanish audiovisual market.“
