Como Dos Desconocidos (Like Two Strangers)


This short film is about a guy meeting his ex at the mall. There's awkwardness, shy smiles, and very few words, but you can tell that there's still some sparks between these two.

Definitely squee-worthy, and it overall made me gush. Just the kind of film to make you feel all warm inside on a day like Valentine's Day.

(English subtitles are available as closed captions for this one, so watch it now! Then again, maybe you'd prefer a love story involving geeks? Or have you been pushed into the horrible place that is the friendzone?)

Pecera (Fishbowl)

Pecera (Fishbowl)

This short film is about a woman dealing with a number of "unfair dismissals" in her company. It also features the story of a woman who may or may not be dismissed herself... But how either scenario will end is anyone's guess.

Curious short film, and quite an interesting way to tell a rather open-ended and thoughtful situation.

(English subtitles available for this one, so why not watch Pecera now? Or are you tired of the office and would rather experience an idyllic situation?)

Bendito Machine II: The Spark Of Life


This short animated film features beautiful artwork, interesting characters, and a notable lesson about greed. Yes, Bendito Machine II definitely carries on the world (and careless personalities) of Bendito Machine I: Everything You Need. This time, however, the lesson involves a kind of fizzy drink, and righteous karma.

Curious short film, but definitely relatable. And, perhaps, relevant.

(This has no dialogue, by the way. Watch it now! Then again, maybe you're looking for more silent films? Here are some animated ones, too - Fuga is one of my favorites.)

Recursos Humanos

This short film is about a man from human resources who is to interview a new face. While this situation may show the discomfort some applicants may feel when questioned by an HR personnel (particularly an inappropriate one), this also gives a hint of vindication for them, too.

Lovely film deserving of a slow clap. If you're interested in knowing more about this short film, here's a video on how it was made.

(Watch it now, since it's got English subtitles available. By the way, Prescindibles, a film by the same director, is another short film that features an HR-related role, though that deals with the termination process.)

Todos Mis Vecinos Son Inmigrantes


This short film features a guy with a colorful group of neighbors - immigrants from all parts of the world. While little (understandable) dialogue is passed between the people themselves, simple gestures like a smile and an open palm speak wonders.

Simple and cute, really.

(No subtitles for the videos I'm featuring for this one, but there's very little dialogue here anyway. Watch the film now! Or how about watching this short film about an ex-boyfriend knocking on his ex-gf's door for some reason?)

This short film is about a man going to Prague to meet his ladylove. Besides a bittersweet undertone of meeting your true love and experiencing the possible pain of separation, this story is told amidst a studio-made backdrop (not shot on location, but they made it work) and a lovely soundtrack.

Merry Little Christmas

This short film is about the abuse a mother and daughter undergo through the hands of a man. Told with a number of bloodstains and visions of monsters, this movie shows the horribly terrible life of those who experience domestic abuse.

This one affected me very much. It's honestly very brutal, so steel yourself before watching this.

(By the way, El Orden De Las Cosas is another heart-breaking film that tackles domestic abuse.)

Chico Y Chepe

This short film is about two brothers, Chico and Chepe. They have been living on their own for a while, but they are about to meet some people who will change their lives forever.

Simple flick, but cute.

This short film is about a weed dealer who plans to move with his girlfriend to Colombia. While everything is about set for the planned migration, things get messy as Luciano decides to take on one more job before leaving.

Indie in origin, but anchored in the sad reality of illegal dealing and relationships.

El Valor Del Dinero (The Value of Money)

This short film is about a man who is trying to buy a new "life". Since "life", apparently, is too cheap, the sales agent tries to sell him various other items instead, like a "conscience" and a "suicide".

This film is interesting in that it tries to note the supposed value of morals, ideals, and other intangibles. Food for thought, and an interesting social commentary.

This short film is about a doctor and his son, one diagnosed as mentally imbalanced. While it tells the story of an old man worrying about his child, it also dabbles into talk of religion, madness, and reality.

Curious storytelling, but plenty of thought-provoking dialogue here.

This short film about lesbians and the friends they fall in love with is part-movie, part-documentary. It features the story of two friends falling asleep on the same bed, while it also has snippets of live interviews with lesbians talking about their personal experiences.

I suppose human relationships, even those between women, aren't ever easy. (Here's another film about, in turn, a guy falling for his lady friend.)

Buenas Noches (Good Night)

This short film is about a grandmother bidding her granddaughter good night. However, there seems to be a lingering sinister presence at night that the young girl knows about... Something the grandmother may just discover, too.

This is reminiscent of Ignacio Rodó's Tuck Me In, an award-winning short film of the same nature.

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

En Espera (On Hold)

This short film is about a rural girl who is traveling to the city. Set amidst a number of scenic backdrops and everyday sights, this movie will show not just the beautiful sights of Ecuador, but also the startling reality of life for some children there.

Un Novio De Mierda (A Shitty Boyfriend)

This short film is about a guy stopping by his ex-girlfriend's house to "say hi". The lady doubts his reasons for coming, especially after his length of stay in the washroom, but the ending might just wrap it up for us. Maybe. Amusing, though.

This short film is about a human who is examined by an android. The test - to prove that he is, indeed, "human". While providing a backstory of how humans will inevitably ruin the Earth, this film also allows for thought-provoking dialogue on what makes humans different from robots.

Desanimado (Unanimated)

This short film is about a man who thinks he is different from everyone else - particularly because he thinks he's a cartoon character.

Told with bits of animation and an interesting monologue of a man who is not sure if he fits in with the world, this film made me think about how isolated people can be when they feel "too" different from others.

Separata (Audition Piece)

This short film is about a woman wanting to audition for a certain role. However, there's more than just an audition piece here; there are also other issues, such as the question of relationships, the right lines, and playing roles.

Great acting, interesting ending, lovely picture.
