In an age when technology shrinks distances but may not substitute the need for physical companionship, writer Clara Roquet and writer-director Carlos Marques-Marcet present a love story that may hit too close to home. Lovers Alex (Natalia Tena, of Game of Thrones fame) and Sergi (David Verdaguer) cling to their relationship despite the thousands of miles separating Los Angeles and Barcelona, where they live respectively. With heart-wrenching performances by the two leads and Marques-Marcet’s clever use of familiar tech tools as storytelling devices, audiences will be asking themselves the same question—can love survive Long Distance?
