As every month Cinemaattic will be back in the Summerhall to present a programme of independent short films distributed by OFF ECAM. This project was born in ECAM, one of the most prestigious Spanish film schools.
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?
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.
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…
