Rapture (Arrebato)
A cult masterpiece of underground cinema, Ivan Zulueta's Rapture depicts, in a metaphorical way, the vampiric relationship between a film director suffering a personal and creative crisis and a young man obsessed with the process of filming.

Testing the limits between fiction and reality, vampirism provides the ideal vehicle for a fascinating meditation on addiction to drugs, to cinema, and ultimately, to the other. Selected by Pedro Almodóvar.
