Directed by: Héctor Escandell
Country: Spain
Genre: Fantasy, Horror



Young Agnès establishes contact with writer Joan Castelló, who died in 1984. Castelló tells Agnès three incredible fairy tales:
ALL HALLOWS’ EVE follows the adventures of Pep Manyà, a man who lives with his mother and has a single hobby: fishing.
THE SKULLS OF CAN FITA tells the tragic story of two generations of a family that lives in one of the wealthiest houses in Sant Jordi.
THE GIANT OF ES VEDRÀ is a surprising adventure about two children who, in order to save their father, travel to a mysterious island inhabited by a terrible giant.

Director’s vision

Since I read the Ibizan Fairy Tales book, by Joan Castelló Guasch, I wanted to make an adaptation that mixes old tradition and fantasy. Through three magic and eerie fairy tales, my intention is to create a film with countless historical, cultural, and family values, fantastic elements, and large doses of entertainment.
