Víctor Moreno’s latest investigation into infrastructure plunges the audience deep underground in Madrid to deliver a portrait of the unseen labor and locations that exist beneath a major city in the 21st century. Following workers through tunnels and caverns, Moreno uses the camera as a kind of exploratory device, much like the throbbing machinery found in these subterranean spaces. One of the year’s most novel filmic experiences, The Hidden City is a new kind of city symphony: dark, damp, straining to find the most minuscule sliver of light beaming down from above, but always aware of the life that nonetheless thrives so deep underground.
