The Institut Guttmann has been the scene of shooting of Dani Rovira's new film, "100 metros", produced by Filmax and directed by Marcel Barrena.

"100 metros" is inspired by the true story of Ramón Arroyo, a successful businessman who diagnosed Multiple Sclerosis, and decides to explore the limits of overcoming, deciding to face one of the toughest athletic events, the Ironman.

As the Institut Guttmann is a neurorehabilitation specialist hospital and sees patients with multiple sclerosis, the production equipment and script of the movie was advised by clinicians to provide the maximum possible accuracy professional history. In addition, the Institut Guttmann welcomed for 4 days the crew and the actors Dani Rovira, Karra Elejalde, Clara Segura, Alexandra Jiménez i David Verdaguer, among others.

Now, Dani Rovira in an interview for EuropaPress talks about this new project and the experience of filming in Guttmann: "You start to appreciate what you have, to discover that some people are born with very complicated cards but still want to play them, amd maybe you've got a trio of aces and you complain. "

And especially appreciates the participation of some patients and older patients of the hospital who wanted to be part of those days  acting as figuration in the film: "Above all four days we were shooting at the Institut Guttmann, it was wonderful, I want to thank and applaud all extras because they were sick and they decided to do it and have been among the most beautiful days of filming I've experienced in my life."
