Here are the 7 Spanish Short Films for this week:

Éramos Pocos // One Too Many

by Borja Cobeaga

Synopsis: When his wife leaves him, Joaquín turns to his son to help him bring his mother-in-law out of a home to do the housework.

Festival & Awards:

2007 Oscar Awards – Best Live Action Short Film, Nominee
Cleveland Film Festival – Best International Short Film, Honorable Mention, Winner
Alcine Festival de Cine de Alcalá de Henares – Best Screenplay; Best Art Direction, Winner
Montecatini Filmvideo Short Film Festival – Best Short Film, Winner

 

Beti Bezperako Koplak // Couplets for an Everlasting Love

by Ageda Kopla Taldea

Synopsis: St. Agatha’s Eve is a deep-rooted Basque tradition in which people walk from house to house, accompanied by improvised verse-makers (bertsolaris), singing verses to the beating of long sticks. Building on this celebration, bertsolari Maialen Lujanbio composes a stark denunciation of gender violence. In verse after verse, she condemns the different manifestations of sexist violence and our inability to combat it.

Based on these couplets, twenty young artists direct a collective-created piece, using different animation techniques.

Festival & Awards:

2018 Goya Awards – Best Animated Short Film, Nominee
Human Rights Film Festival
Sardinia Film Festival
Festival Miden

 

Desayuno con Diadema // Breakfast at Enrique’s

2013 Goya Awards – Best Fictional Short Film, Nominee
Alcine Festival de Cine de Alcalá de Henares – Audience Award, Winner
Skepto Film Festival – Special Jury Mention to Best Performance, Winner

Galatée à l’infini // Infinite Galatea

by Julia Maura, Mariangela Pluchino, Ambra Reijnen, Maria Chatzi and Fatima Flores

Synopsis: Based on a revised and updated myth of Pygmalion and Galatea, this brilliant audiovisual essay contrasts, composes and reconstructs archival footage with guidance from a voice-over. A powerful, aggressive and necessary feminist manifesto about how the female body is represented and the utilitarian sense of its sexuality when seen from under the male gaze.

Festival & Awards:

ZINEBI Festival of Documentary and Short Film Bilbao – Grand Award of Spanish Cinema, Winner
Sicilia Queer Film Fest – Best Short, Winner
Hot Docs Canadian Documentary Festival
Reykjavik International Film Festival

En Carne Viva // Flesh and Blood by Federico Esquerro

Festival & Awards:

Festival de Cine de Lanzarote
En Lugar Sin Limites Festival de Cine LGBT de Ecuador
Festival KO & Digital Barcelona

 

When I Get Home

by Aldemar Matias

Synopsis: In downtown Havana, Tomas and Luis built a home in their own terms – Beatles’ posters share the space with a pet chicken and a dog. Daily tasks generate a singular choreography between both men inside their own territories, introducing the couple just days before their 28th anniversary.

Festival & Awards:

São Paulo Short Film Festival – Audience Award, Winner
MiradasDoc – Documentary Film Festival
Rome Concorto Film Festival
