In an age of dating apps, End of the Century begs the question if our hookups are just random encounters time and again, or is something else at work that connects us?

An Argentinian man from New York and a Spanish man from Berlin hook up by chance while in Barcelona. What seems like a one-night encounter between two strangers becomes an epic, decades-spanning relationship, which writer-director Lucio Castro depicts in a nonlinear fashion throwing time and space into question as we invest in the physical and emotional connections on screen.

Castro’s inventive and enigmatic debut feature is consistently surprising, turning a love story into a cosmic voyage with no clear beginning or end.
