Elefantes Sobre Una Telarana

Elefantes Sobre Una Telaraña (English: Elephants Over A Spider Web) begins with a man’s birthday. He’s just about to blow out his candles, when his little daughter asks whether she can blow them out for him. After doing so, she runs off to get her dad’s present, a letter she wrote for him for being the best daddy in the world. There seems to be something amiss, though. Why does he look at her that way? Is there something going on that we don’t see? Watch now

Paseo

Paseo

(Thank you to reader Laia for sending this one in! Have a short film to suggest? Submit it to me or contact me about it now!)

Paseo starts on a cold day. One man, a poet, is preparing a cigarette. Another man comes to him and asks him for one too, but the first man says it’s the last one he has. They share the cigarette instead, and speak little. They then notice the man crying behind them, who says he’s sad as he was never able to confess to a woman. The poet then comes up with a plan that may involve his lighter and a few carefully chosen words. Watch now

Sonata

Sonata

Sonata begins with a young child, brought into a world filled with people of different intent and desires. He grows up learning that man is driven by sexual desire in particular, and not endearing sentiments. With this in mind, he finds a woman, marries her, falls into the monotony of marriage, and notices her relationship with the man she’s practicing a sonata with. Watch now

Cubo Mágico (The Magic Cube)

Cubo Mágico

Cubo Mágico starts with an old man. He’s lying in a hospital bed, with only a Rubik’s cube in his hands. He plays with the cube as the machines start to pulsate to the beat of his heart. He makes a final turn, and he falls into his pillows. After a while, we see the same man, with the same cube. What does the Rubik’s cube mean for the man? Why does he keep trying to solve it?
