El Muerto

El Muerto

El Muerto starts with an old couple, who seem to have a visitor late at night. Not knowing what to do, they call up the police. Two men in a car come up, and one of the men introduces himself as a detective. The old man and woman then relate the story of how they are concerned about the visitor upstairs, especially since he looks very much like their dead son. Watch now

La Mosca

La Mosca

La Mosca starts off with a man furiously typing away on a typewriter. He’s working on his novel, his life’s work. As the night goes by, he reminisces his life, his love, and his pain. Soon, he tires. Just as he is about to drift to sleep, a fly comes into the motel room, and it seems to want nothing more than to keep him awake. Watch now

Cantautor

Cantautor

Cantautor begins with a song. It seems interesting enough, but it does not sound quite complete yet. The two men struggle to finish the song before “they” need it, and they stumble along words and looking for someone to play the violin solo. With a few cigarettes, some drinks, an expectation for the phone to ring and a kidnapping, they attempt to complete a song that starts off with Turra, turrita. Watch now

La Huida (The Runaway)

La Huida

La Huida (The Runaway, in English) is about a moment. Or, rather, a series of moments that may or may not have any connection with each other. There’s talk of a piece of gum, a stop light, a soda can… And who knows that else. What exactly is this film talking about? Why is there a man running with a brief case? Does any of this make sense at all? Watch now
