A long distance relationship is pushed to the limits when 6,000 miles separate two lovers for a year. The film updates the classic long distance relationship motif with new technologies and storytelling methods. Technology becomes the only source of emotional communication when the protagonists living in Los Angeles and Barcelona.

“Marques-Mercet and his actors establish an intimacy with the audience that's practically unique. Even if you love it only a little, not completely, you will probably remember '10,000 Km' for the rest of your life.”


— Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

“The insights about tech-enabled disconnections are hardly earth-shattering, but the nuanced performances find the emotional truth in every pixelated gaze.”


— Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times

“An Insightful, Moving Romance For the Technology Age. (...) With time, the filmmaker achieves a small miracle by stringing together the movie’s concise segments into an emotional whole.”


— Eric Kohn, IndieWire
