Can Massot, nerve center of the film
From Can Massot we cannot see with more pride and admiration the screening, this December 2, of the of film Cork (2022) .
Can Massot has been the scene of many experiences throughout its long existence. Today we want to tell you about a recent one. The farmhouse of Can Massot, from the 17th century, currently also a rural tourism house, was the focal point of the filming of the film Cork (2022), nominated this year in the Official Section of the 70th edition of the International Film Festival of San Sebastian. During the summer of 21 and thanks to the magic of cinema, the farmhouse becomes accommodation, make-up room, wardrobe area and rehearsal space for the main actors of the film piece. It is shot almost entirely in the outdoor and indoor spaces of the municipality of Darnius, and stars famous actors and actresses inside and outside our borders such as Vicky Luengo and Pol López. The Televisió de Catalunya, TV3, and the Basque television, EiTB, and the Ministry of Culture, participate in the project of Donostia director and screenwriter Mikel Gurrea, which is shot in Catalan. The film is about cork, as its name suggests, and it is probably this product and the variety of tree that produces it, which also bears its name, the main characteristic of our town and, consequently, of our farm . So much so that our history, the story of the film or the container in which the drink that comes from the vineyards of the Empordà is stored, would be covered differently without the existence of the vegetable wrapping that dresses the our forest and our village. In every sense, from Can Massot we cannot see, and in an extensive way the people who love our area, with more pride and admiration the screening, this December 2, of the film Cork (2022).
