- Maldita. A Love Song to Sarajevo2022 | 27’ | SPA
His God is Love. His homeland is Earth. Its gender? Human. In Maldita, a love song to Sarajevo, Božo Vrećo, the most revolutionary of the Balkan artists, sings to life, to overcoming obstacles and to the love story between two cities, Sarajevo and Barcelona, which knew how to find each other in difficult times to never say goodbye.
- Mothertruckers2022 | 15’ | SPA
“Mothertruckers” is an insight into the untold story of female truck drivers. Taking place after Brexit and during the UK transport and fuel crisis, it addresses the conflict of being a female lorry driver in a male-dominated profession and explores the romantic idea of finding freedom on the road compared with the hard work and unconventional lifestyle of being a lorry driver.
- Murmur2021 | 10’ | AUT
What would happen if at some point, natural and human-made sounds became indistinguishable from one another? Today, birds imitate telephones and people put little chirping boxes in their homes. Katharina Pichler soberly compiles such observations while nature and civilization come together audio-visually to ultimately merge in a portentous alliance.
- Rosa Rosae. A Spanish Civil War Elegy | Rosa Rosae. La Guerra Civil2021 | 6’ | SPA
Saura creates and recovers more than thirty images, drawings and photos that he prints, manipulates, plays with and then films, to create a story that, recreates the Spanish civil war, but also reflects the horrors of a universal war, from the gaze of a child and its environment.
- The road bad and the place dark2021 | 23’ | SPA
Sierra Leone is the second poorest country in the world. After overcoming one of the toughest and bloodiest civil wars, in 2014 its citizens had to face one of the most devastating epidemics in living memory, the Ebola epidemic. The consequences of those horrors ended up with extinguishing the spark of development and plunging the population into total darkness, in which they have been living since 1992. The lack of stable light supply is a major constraint for the development of medical work, directly affecting the life expectancy of Sierra Leone people. The images obtained are part of the reality encountered at the hospital wardens in the Koinadugu district.
- Borja Larrondo
Filmmaker and photographer with a degree in Audiovisual Communication from the Complutense University of Madrid. In 2012 he attended the International Master of Documentary and Narration at Efti and is currently studying Social and Cultural Anthropology at the UNED. His work is based on the exploration of narrative-visual worlds, as well as experimental documentary filmmaking. He focuses on the idea of error and memory (real or imaginary), he translates fiction as part of a scene from reality; a personal imaginary made up of portrayed feelings and emotions. Defined as a multidisciplinary artist, his work and his installation stem from an interest in sociology and anthropological narratives as part of popular culture. He works on identity, psyche and perceptive capacity, raw and decadent. “The Road Bad and the Place Dark” is his first short film as a director.read more
