“La Casa del Desierto” featured in the fifth season of Black Mirror series
The famous and award-winning British television series Black Mirror, created by Charlie Brooker and streamed by the popular Netflix platform, features “La Casa del Desierto” by Guardian Glass in one of its new mind-bending stories in the series, now in its fifth season.
Located in Gorafe, Granada (Spain), “La Casa del Desierto” (The House of the Desert) appears as an ideal place to escape from the connected world in the plot of chapter 2, “Smithereens”, which stars actor Topher Grace, of Spider Man 3 fame, among other films.
The episode was filmed last summer over a period of two full days. The production and filming team showed great interest in the house throughout their visit, captivated by La Casa’s multiple perspectives and focus points.
“La Casa del Desierto” is a pioneering Guardian Glass project located in the Iberian Peninsula. The objective was to test Guardian Glass products and solutions in the most extreme weather conditions and thus demonstrate the importance of selecting the appropriate type of glass for the windows of any home.
La Casa was also chosen as a shooting location for other film and advertising productions, fashion shoots or photojournalism. In this type of collaboration, major producers, firms and brands have found “La Casa del Desierto” to be an extraordinary place which they can use to reach and inspire their target audiences.
First released in 2011, Black Mirror is an English science fiction anthology based on independent episodes that explores a disturbing and dark future which could be ours if the current greatest technological innovations were misused or mismanaged. It counts an Emmy Award, a Peabody Award and a British Academy Television Craft Award among its most notable achievements. The series has built up a base of millions of fans and followers around the world.
