FILM REVIEW

ECATE

ECATE

Directed by Tommaso Frangini The film tells the story of an old knight wondering through the woods. Haunted by this voice of a woman, he seems lost and disoriented. He comes near a river and he drinks the water only to fall down to the ground a few moments later.

Girasoles

Girasoles

Directed by Jeff Zorrilla Combining in a Dada manner a series of apparently (or not?) dispersed images and actions, “Girasoles” aims to portray a sort of anatomy of the human sensibility, by following simultaneously three points of view focused on different life aspects.

Heart Brakers

Heart Brakers

Directed by Rodrigo Lopresti "Heart Brakers" is one of the films which impose a lot of emotions after its end, mainly because it talks in a very comprehensible manner about a situation which we may interfere in the future or in which we’ve already been, as the problems that may appear in a relationship make an universal subject which we all can relate.

San Guerrero

San Guerrero

Directed by Jeff Zorrilla Created as a succession of short (and sometimes fast-forwarded) frames depicting the job of this American ex-pat dealer, Jeff Zorrilla’s “San Guerrero” is an interesting project which describes in a minimal formula a nowadays life story.

Segments of Jonah Episode 1&2

Segments of Jonah Episode 1&2

Directed by Tommy Graef The whole story is tormented by guilt and fear, being very complex at the beginning and getting even more complicated and multilayered throughout the film, always creating new mysteries.

Wilderness

Wilderness

Directed by Jasper Graeve Though maybe resembling too much the french film it is inspired from, turning this into almost a pastiche, we appreciate the complexity of the universe portrayed by a very young director.

Thus Passes The Glory

Thus Passes The Glory

Directed by Jarrod R.F. Hachey This film's dark and gloomy atmosphere underlines the main character’s torment in an expressionistic manner.

The Suitcase

The Suitcase

Directed by Agnieszka Piotrowska The film approaches a universal theme that can be relatable to people around the world while it also shows a character coming from a medium where discrimination is still an aching matter that affects many women.
