While the uncertainty rises over the continuity of the illegal Madrilenian district La Cañada Real, the film follows the daily life of members of the Gabarre-Mendoza family, each member struggling in their own way with their life being in transition.

Last Days of Spring is a hybrid film, set in an existing community. The family Gabarre Mendoza are ‘real’ members of this existing community under threat. The hybrid approach of working with non-actors and a documentary aesthetic combined with small fictionalized storylines places the film within the neo-realistic tradition.

The film has been supported by Netherlands Film Fund | New Screen, Dutch Cultural Media Fund| START,  Netherlands Film Production Incentive,  ICAA Spain, Film Madrid.
