  • Untravel

    A film about (local) patriotism, tourism and emigration. The girl lives in a gray, isolated country, enclosed by a huge wall. She has never travelled anywhere, but all her life she has dreamt of leaving forever for a perfect world called “Abroad”.

  • Le Champ De Mais (The Field)

    A poor agricultural labourer leads a double life in the villa’s last remaining cornfield but the harvest is approaching.

  • The Atlas

    A remote, and a bit crazy, psychiatric hospital receives a curious patient — he doesn’t move nor speak but spends his days standing with his hands up. The only thing known is his nickname — “The Atlas”. In a word, he is a riddle and a riveting one at that.

  • Dead Birds

    A failing teenage badminton player at a Catholic Girls School is visited by a Saint – who agrees to help her if she’ll complete three tasks for him. Dead Birds is a twisted Super Natural Black Comedy about competitive mother daughter relationships, losing your religion and learning how far you’d go to get what you want.

  • El Destetado (The Foreign Body)

    Venezuela, France / 18min / 2018

    WRI/DIR/PROD: Héctor Silva Núñez
    PROD: Eva Chillón, Marco Olmos

    Jairo is a native young man from Venezuela who was born with no nipples. Distanced from the customs of his people, he explores in the city a male ideal to belong to.


  • Piggy

    Sara is an overweight teen that lives in the shadow of a clique of cool girls holidaying in her village. Not even her childhood friend, Claudia, defends her when she’s bullied at the local pool in front of a unknown man. Her clothes are stolen and Sara must get home wearing nothing but her bikini. The long walk home will mark the rest of her life.

  • Sister

    A man remembers his childhood memory of growing up with an annoying little sister in 1990s China. How would his life have been if things had gone differently?
