Yo También Te Quiero (I Like You Too)

This short film features a guy talking about how he waits for his girl friend to be his girlfriend. The pains of being in this nefarious place is given glorious detail, and is peppered only by a building frustration... oh, and a dog.

(For another tale from the friendzone, check out La Carta De Los Secretos.)

Brutal Relax

Mr. Olivarez comes out of recovery to enjoy the beach. Apparently, he will have more fun than he thinks he could, gore and creatures from the sea notwithstanding.

This fun short film is brought to you by the same guys who made the bloody great short, Fist of Jesus.

La Búsqueda (The Search)

This short film is about a father looking for his daughter, and his daughter looking for... something, amidst all the alcohol. It's interesting how they're connected with the string of a tin can telephone.

Sometimes, even when we think we've sunk really low, we'll find that there's someone out there who may actually still care for us.

En La Próxima Parada (At The Next Stop)

This short film is about a guy who is looking for a girlfriend, and finds a left-behind planner instead. Amidst beautiful string music and a black-and-white landscape, this movie shows us the initial awkwardness and undeniable spark between two people looking for love.

Oh, and that ending? Cute.

Huecos (Gaps)

The ever-ticking clock, the gaps in the bookshelf, and the short messages mean something to the old man, but what, exactly? Great story-telling on this one, and what a revealing ending, too.

Doble Check

This short film about an (un)read WhatsApp message shows us just how the Internet keeps couples together... and apart. Communicating has never been easier, I think.

Oh, and remember kids: El doble check es DIOS.

Desire on a Fall Afternoon

This short film about a girl baby-sitting a boy on a wheelchair has hidden desire written all over it. It must ache to want to be touched.

But really, that caged bird provided quite a message from the start.

Juan Con Miedo (Fearful John)

This short film about two kids, an old legend, and a haunted house is creepy, and really rather curious. Is the legend real or not?

Well, either way, fact is usually stranger than fiction.

El Desayuno

All the dog wants is a nice, heaping plate of bacon and eggs. He will do almost anything to get that delicious breakfast. (You have to applaud his efforts, too.)

But really: what a cute and smart dog.

El Último Canto Del Pájaro Cú (The Cu Bird's Last Song)

This short film about a man reminiscing his life while on a hospital bed is curious, yet somewhat sad. Interestingly, the story-telling is done with glimpses, mixed memories, and thoughts about the sea.

(The ending is reminiscent of the one in El Orden De Las Cosas.)

Ruedas (Wheels)

This short film, which is about a young boy who may not be able to fulfill his biking dream, brought out the tears in me. That someone that young should contract a terminal illness is just heart-breaking.

This short film about an arguing couple, stuffed dolls, and little windows is as funny as they come. Loving the mixed media, and it's amusing how the story is aptly fit in less than a minute.

3 Minutos (3 Minutes)

This short film featuring a father and a child is almost heart-breaking. It's almost sad how three minutes could pass by so quickly. Oh, how precious the seconds could be.

*There are English subtitles for this, which you can enable as captions on the video.
