Segundo Premio

Winner of Best Spanish Film at the 2024 Málaga Film Festival, Saturn Return is a story of music and passion, with a hypnotic soundtrack.

In the late 1990s, art and culture are at their height in Granada and an indie rock music group is on a quest to record their third LP, which will either propel them to stardom or see them fade into oblivion. Their idea is to have the recording take place in New York, but everything becomes complicated, and the creative process turns into an ordeal. Relationships shatter, rehearsals become self-destructive, and the unbearable pressure from the record label leads to arguments, only interrupted by fleeting moments of happiness. Yet, nobody realises that they are creating an album that will forever change the music scene for an entire generation.

Inspired by, but not based on, the story of the legendary Spanish band Los Planetas, this beautiful, disruptive drama highlights the complexity in creative work and showcases excellent performances from up-and-coming actors.

“A beautiful and dark journey through the lights and shadows of a generation and its musicians.” - Cineuropa
