Description

FOCUS ¡VIVA EL CINE! “Esta noche tan oscura, con sus sombras tan tranquilas y el viento me sigue cantando, esta humilde canción.” Whether immersed in the mystical or grounded in the real, these Spanish-language and Latin American shorts traverse a universe of emotion. Pablo Pérez Lombardini uses magic realism to depict a young man’s search for The Enchanted Lagoon (Mexico, 17 min) and the unnerving turn his journey takes. In Jesse Allen’s dark comedy The Clean Up (US, 13 min), two office-building cleaning ladies run into a most unexpected late-night problem. Live action and animation meld in a surreal urban rhapsody in Guilherme Marcondes’s The Master’s Voice: Caveirão (Brazil/France, 12 min). Maricarmen Marino’s lovely Bella (Mexico, 10 min) explores a young man’s mortality through his mother’s memories and contemplations. And in Melissa Hickey’s Ni-Ni (US, 18 min), an unlikely reunion becomes a meditation on gang violence and dangerous choices.
