MORE ABOUT THE FILMS
La mala fe (2019) – Bad Faith
Director: Elena Pauné, Eva Pauné, Marina Pauné
Across the stretch of a long, languid summer, power dynamics shift within the complex relationships of three young siblings.
A family spending their holiday at the Costa Brava. The older brother’s belief system will be disrupted when an act of kindness results in a little tragedy. This will lead him into a routine where refusing to make decisions could lead to greater tragedies.
Restos de cosas (2019) – Remains of Things
Director: Salvador Sunyer
with the special collaboration of Jose Sacristan
The hands of a man try to reconstruct the history of his life with objects that he keeps in boxes. Each object refers to a moment. These remnants of things tell the story of his life, which in the end could also be ours.
Restos de Cosas is a small film that deals with memory and the passage of time. Such a broad, universal and intergenerational theme treated from a minimal, intimate and personal thing: the objects that a man has been saving during his life.
Un chico cualquiera Rosario sólo hay una (2019) – An Average Boy and a Leading Light Rosario
Director: Àlex Monner
Obsessed with a decadent actress, a young fan decides to approach her. No, it’s not a suspense film, or horror, or anything like that. What follows from here is a two-way conversation, as fun as it is ambiguous, which will lead to an unexpected ending. The debut director Àlex Monner has an overwhelming interpretation of a Loles León that seems to be straight out of an Almodovar film.
Entre railes (2018) In Between Tracks
Director: Delfina Spratt, Àlex Puig Ros
A train driver carries a load heavier than the train itself: the responsibility of stopping it when a person appears on the tracks and knowing that they will not be able to do so in time. Aboard the train, drivers will tell us about the consequences of having to put on the emergency brake.
Suc de síndria (2019) – Watermelon Juice
Director: Irene Moray
Suc de Síndria is one of the most anticipated short films of the year. Love and its unique healing power. When we look at the effects of sexual abuse is mostly from the perspective of trauma, but how can love (and watermelon juice) help to overcome such an experience?
Barbara and Pol spend a few days on holiday with a group of friends in a house surrounded by nature. They want to have a good time and find a peaceful space where they can enjoy their intimacy. With the support of Pol, in the midst of nature, between tears and laughter, Barbara will heal old wounds and redefine her sexuality.
