The long awaited moment has arrived and we can share with you the trailer to The Second Defeat a film by Eugenio Recuenco.
At the end of 2014, Eugenio Recuenco and Eric Dover started a crowdfunding towards the production costs of making their movie The Second Defeat based on the book, Los Girasoles Ciegos (The Blind Sunflowers) by Spanish writer Alberto Méndez.
This crowdfunding was aimed at equipping the professionals who would worked on this project with the necessary tools to ensure that their creativity and eagerness was not betrayed by a tight budget, thus allowing them the freedom to do the true justice this project truly deserved.
This short film has a special feature. When SOGECINE and Jose Luis Cuerda selflessly assigned the rights of Alberto Méndez’s book, their sole condition was that the project had a non-profit nature. Therefore it was decided that , if the crowdfunding target budget of €205,000 was exceeded the surplus amount will be allocated to DYES, an NGO that works in countries like Sierra Leone, Chad and the Ivory Coast promoting education and sport as elements of peace and development, and helping to rehabilitate child soldiers.
The Second Defeat, is a breathtaking story dealing with a young poet who escaped from the victors of a terrible war to the mountains together with his pregnant wife. In this lonely and cold scenario, the young woman gives birth to a child and dies right after. Thanks to a private diary, where the man puts his fear into words, we can picture the background of the futile fight of the father to save his son’s life.
Filming started in January of 2015.

When, back in 1996, photographer Lorenzo Agius went to shoot some relatively unknown actors making a film called Trainspotting, he couldn’t have known he was about to create some of the most iconic images of the decade.
Not that anything about that day or his subsequent success could be considered a fluke. After the shoot – which featured Ewan McGregor (as Mark Renton) staring in a state of shock directly into the camera, seemingly wet, with a cigarette dangling from his mouth – made Agius’ name, he went on the capture the spirit of the 90s in new ways.
In 1997 came the famous shot of Liam Gallagher and Patsy Kensit draped in a Union Jack that would not only grace the cover of Vanity Fair, but capture the essence of Cool Britannia – a concept that may make us cringe now but at the time felt, well, cool.
From that point onwards Agius’ career shot off further and further into celebrity orbit, as he added the world’s biggest stars to his roster – Angelina, Brad, Beyonce, Madonna and just about everyone else in the world you need only refer to by their first name.
