At the end of 2014, Eugenio Recuenco and Eric Dover started a crowdfunding towards production costs of making their movie The Second Defeat based on the book, Los Girasoles Ciegos or The Blind Sunflowers by Spanish writer Alberto Méndez.

This crowdfunding was aimed at equipping the professionals who would work on this project with the necessary tools so that their creativity and eagerness is not betrayed by a tight budget, thus allowing them the freedom this project truly deserves.

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.

We are happy to share with you the behind the scenes images of the filming which started at the end of January of 2015.
