Synopsis

Makkina is a short documentary about the Paralympic cyclist Juanjo Mendez. After suffering a motorcycle accident in 1992 in which he lost his leg and left arm, Juanjo returned to hop on a bike and founded the Paralympic team Cycling Team Genesis. The members of this team, especially Juanjo Mendez, have become a reference at a national and international level, both for their capacity and spirit of excellence, and for their important sporting achievements. Makkina is part of a larger project on the Genesis team Cycling Team, which includes a series of 30 photographic images in black and white (some of which have been incorporated into the short).
