Yo Antes Era Bella (I Used To Be Beautiful, in English) is about an old woman talking about her younger days.

Estoy En Ello (I’m On It, in English) is a short documentary about men and women who all seem to have experienced hopeless times. They’ve all gone through hardships, whether it be from having no jobs, getting involved with bad people, or just living in a very hard way. However, thanks to organizations like Cáritas, people like these are finding out that they, too, can continue working on themselves, and that they have bright futures ahead of them. Watch now
Enredados is a short film about a video game geek who sets up his place for a date with a girl he met online. His quiet introverted self is only magnified by his guest, a vocal young lady with a curious past and an even curiouser forwardness. What was dreamed as a pleasurable evening does not exactly come to terms, and where the two of them may end up in is anyone’s guess.
This is a silly film. It shows the pitfalls and potentials dangers of online dating. It also makes you wary about bringing that new girl (who may or may not be into BDSM) into your apartment for the first time. Proceed with caution, kids.
(Besides English subtitles, this one has Spanish subtitles available also in closed captions. By the way, maybe you’ll also enjoy this short film of a lady having dinner at home with her ideal man. Or how about this film about a couple in an awkward one night stand?) Watch now
