Cúmulo & Nimbo

This short film about two guys staring at clouds is really rather curious. What's with the puppets? What's with the dream? Was that a meta angle? Interesting end note, too.

Iniciación A La Fotografía

This amusing short film is about how a couple, especially the particularly talkative wife, is inquiring about photography lessons.

The agony and awkwardness of the inappropriate intrusion is only topped by an interesting side note at the very end. Funny.

Dulce (Sweet)

This short film about love (for both young and old) is beautiful and a little sad. It stirs up memories of holding hands with your special someone, and fulfilled dreams.

Very, very sweet.

El Orden De Las Cosas (The Order of Things)

This dramatic short film about a woman and her husband's belt is almost heart-breaking. The subtle hint of domestic abuse rings throughout the film, and the story-telling for it has been done well.

Fitting ending, but oh, how sad it is.

Control Z

This short film about a guy wanting to edit his life is amusing, but it does have an interesting message at the end. Oh, and beware of amusing sex scenes here.

I don't think I'd like to edit my life that way myself. Hurrah for all its ups and downs.

No Me Ama (She Doesn't Love Me)

This short film about a couple traveling through Uruguay features an interesting monologue about a guy and his feelings for his girl. Is it about the words left unsaid, or the expression of love through little gestures?

Still, how cute.

This short film about two men writing a song, and looking for someone to play a violin, is intriguing, to say the least. It's gritty, there are hints of a kidnapping, as well as plenty of drinks, and the phone never seems to ring.

Turra, turrita.

La Carta De Los Secretos

This film about a guy who talks about the little secrets of the girl that he likes is actually rather endearing. I am loving that last line too.

Paraíso Perdido (Paradise Lost)

This short film is actually very tragic, but it's beautiful, too. There are just really some times when you can't help but feel so hopeless in life, and it can push you to do some horrible things.

Obsesión (Obsession)

This short film about a woman obsessed over a famous model is really rather eerie. Obsession to the point of sending death threats indeed shows an unstable mind.

Nevertheless, great acting on this one. Oh, and fan service.

Semental (Stallion)

This short film between a married woman and her lover quickly spirals from happy making out to dramabomb explosions. It's sometimes funny how people deceive other people, particularly in close relationships.

Copia A ("A" Copy)

This silent animated short film is about a projectionist and a curious, unlabeled reel. It quickly devolves into an intriguing mess of things, and ends up with a rather meta note.

As always though, be mindful about your greed.

This short film is about a corrupt man with a shady lifestyle, and he is about to get an interesting revelation. Gritty, has some blood, and quite realistic in its own right.

Sometimes, you really don't (and maybe can't) know somebody, even if they're very close to you.
