Two people per level. An unknown number of levels. A platform with food for everyone. Are you one of those people who overthinks things when you are up high? Or someone who has no guts when they are down? Leaving it too late to find out and you won't get out of the pit alive.
The Platform is the first feature film directed by Bilbao native, Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia, who directed the shorts 913 (2004) and La casa del lago (2014). The screenplay was written by David Desola and Pedro Rivero, based on an idea by Desola. It stars Iván Massagué, Antonia San Juan, Zorion Eguileor, Emilio Buale and Alexandra Masangkay.
