Plaza Puerta del Sol, 15M, past and future meet in the present where they are combined and incessantly reinvented. Like flowers towards the sun, countries from Europe and around the world have turned towards Madrid, to Puerta del Sol.
 
"Sylvain George is an anticonformist rebel. I like to play my harmonica to convey the cry of the migrants, who are never given the right to speak. I am on the same wavelength as Sylvain who is a very musical filmmaker." (Diabolo)
 
Vers Madrid is a cine-concert, with live music performed by Diabolo on a film which already has its own score of sound and words. A surprise screening will conclude the event.
 
Sylvain George, after finishing his philosophy studies, devoted himself to the making of poetic, political and experimental films. This led him to work with artists such as Archie Shepp, William Parker and Valérie Dréville. In 2005, he started his directing career with the first two parts of series Contrefeux, which were gathered into a documentary called Contrefeux 1 et 2: Comment briser les consciences? Frapper!, which was followed by Contrefeux 3: Europe année 06 (Fragments Ceuta) and Contrefeux 4: Un homme ideal (Fragments K). Between 2005 and 2008, he shot short films No Border and N'entre pas sans violence dans la nuit. In 2009, he participated in the Turin festival with L'impossible - Pages arrachées. He returned the following years with Qu'ils reposent en revolte (Des figures de guerres) (FIPRESCI at the Bafici), and Les Éclats (ma gueule, ma révolte, mon nom) which earned him the award for best international documentary.
