Macià is a 23 year-old man from Ciutadella
who decides to visit Ireland. He follows the trail
of a journey previously made by his parents,
20 years ago. At the same time, Bruna and Maria, two young actresses from Barcelona,
are looking for a quiet and isolated place to walk and disconnect from the noisy city.
Their journeys will cross paths in the town of Ardara. And once they've met
they will remain together until the last days of July. But these wonderful days
shall end suddenly where Europe ends: at the country's highest sea cliffs.
At least, that's what some of the locals would tell you.

Ardara reconstructs the journey of these three young people through the tales
of those who witnessed their travels, and questions who they were and
why they disappeared. Like a jigsaw, we arrange each point of view and a picture
of summer begins to come into focus. It is a portrait of three kids, far away from home,
in their blooming youth. But it is also a portrait of the people who observe
and describe them. Of those who remember the light they spread.

Its is a story that reflects on the very act of storytelling. The only way for human beings
to understand and organize the world.

Elsabeth was founded in 2003 by Xavier Puig and Raimon Fransoy with the
broadcasting of a number of monographs about musicians in the "Xarxa de Televisions
Locals" (Carretera i Mantra). Since then, and with the incorporation of Marc Ruiz in
2004, Elsabeth has continued making programmes for TV such as Peces Úniques
(2004, TVC), Puetes (2007, XAL), Plimba Vorbi Gura (2007, XAL), L'aprenent de Pilot
(2009, TVC) or Portbou (2007, XAL), a docu-ficción series that has been shown in
many TV festivals. Apart from the TV work, Elsabeth has made several music clips
(Refree, Roger Mas, Sidonie, Egon Soda, Ü_ma, Ariel Rot, etc) and documentaries
(Rossy -2011- Adrià Puntí -2012- i El Dolor de la Bellesa -2013-), works that have been
shown at IN-EDIT festival (International festival of music documentary). In 2012 in
colaboration with the journalist Roger Roca and the sound engineer Jordi C. Corchs,
Elsabeth started an online project called Tots Sants (www.totssants.com), where they
publish live studio recordings.

Ardara is their first full-length film.

Bruna
"Yes, I remember her from that day at Nancy's. She was with another girl. She
suddenly stood up and started dancing. I found her so funny that I started dancing
with her. After that, we were chatting a while. Her English wasn't great but I can
speak Spanish and I like to practice it. The next day I had to go to Galway, so I didn't
know anything else about her until I came back to Ardara and somebody told what
had happened."

Macià
"We suspect that he kept on walking onto the depth of the cave of Maghera and the
tide came in. Nobody knows until this day what happened to that little boy."

Nan Sweeney, Ardara
Maria
"They arrived at Rosbeg with their big backpacks. They were soaked and tired.
They saw that little house you can see down there, in front of the beach. I designed
and built it myself -but that's another story. As I was saying, they saw it and one of
them, yes, the one from the picture, the tallest one, she asked me if they could rent
it for a couple of days. And so they stayed there until they met that boy."

Patrick Macloon, Rosbeg

Ardara is a reconstruction of a journey. A journey made by Maria, Bruna and Macià,
three Spanish youngsters in their bloom. Through the eyes of those who saw them passing by,
the film traces their footsteps and tries to understand why they never returned home.
