In this event time-related topics will be presented. Is it possible to alter the future? Can we communicate with our past selfs? Should we simply limit ourselves to live in the present?

Five short stories that will not leave you indifferent will be projected.[cml_media_alt id='1768']En directo[/cml_media_alt]

En directo (Live) tells a commonplace story in today’s Spain. A family about to be evicted from their home desperately seek the help of a TV programme to gather the necessary money to pay off their debt to the bank. The story was originated from the similarities the film’s director felt between the socio-economic situation in Spain and the one he lived in his native Argentina twenty years ago.

[cml_media_alt id='1769']La soledad del cormorán[/cml_media_alt]La soledad del cormorán (The loneliness of the cormorant) is a satire of our current times. It follows Jesús, a man who has been engulfed by his own advertisement persona.

In Nena (Girl), Ana must confront her younger self to take control of her own life.

Helsinki shows Carmen and Lola killing the time before the end of their night shift, wondering about a possible encounter with a future inhabitant of the planet Earth.

Biodiversidad (Biodiversity) presents an idyllic setting for a presumable romantic story to unfold…
