Casi leyendas Q&A at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 27 April 2018, from £5.50 - Visit now

A good old fashioned let’s-get-the-band-back-together jaunt from Argentinian director Gabriel Nesci, Casi leyendas charts the journey of Axel, a lonely figure with Asperger’s, who sets off for Buenos Aires to find his long-lost band mates, Javier and Lucas. The trio mysteriously missed their big break 25 years previously, and the intervening time has come with the usual crises and complications of life: careers, families and relationships. Of course, reuniting comes with the temptation to cast off their problems and relive the rock ‘n’ roll dream – can they make it work a quarter of a century later?

¡Viva! veterans might remember Nesci’s Días de vinilo, a comedy/drama focused on an group of vinyl obsessed friends, which opened the 2014 edition of the festival. Casi leyendas promises similarly feel-good tale of music lovers looking to relive the old days.

Premiering in the UK at HOME as part of this year’s ¡Viva! Spanish & Latin American Festival, Casi leyendas will be accompanied by a Q&A with director Gabriel Nesci for a Q&A following the screening on Fri 27 Apr.
