A woman was almost called Avioneta [small airplane] at birth. Another had a library in the back seat of her car. Yet another fractures her finger with the rebel shelves of her bookshop. Lectors read to cigar makers while they work. Women remember poems while they iron. And to them all I sing. Standing against fire, water, moths, dust, ignorance and fanaticism, an anonymous female army looks after books. An intimate resistance, lacking epic events, revolution or weapons.
A funeral car cruises the streets of Medellín while a young director tells the story of his past in that violent and conservative city. He remembers the pre-production of his first film, a B-movie with ghosts. The young queer scene of Medellín is the film’s cast, but the main protagonist dies of a heroin overdose at the age of 21, just like many friends of the director. This documentary explores the dreams, doubts and fears of an annihilated generation, and the struggle to carry on making cinema.
Attempting a backflip is not safe. You can break your neck or land on your head, or land badly on your wrists. None of that is nice, so my avatar does the trick. It practices on a 6-core processor with the help of Machine Learning. The processor is not the newest but still calculates six jumps per iteration. One iteration takes one minute, this is 360 jumps in an hour and 8.640 jumps in a day. I wouldn’t be able to jump so much myself.
Rita belongs to a women's choir which is in danger of breaking up because they’ve lost the municipal subsidy that allowed them renting their rehearsal room. Now the group has to decide whether accept or not the sponsorship of one of the companies that pollutes the valley the most.
In the heart of Bairro Alto, right in the centre of Lisbon, the building of an old printing workshop is demolished to make way for a development of luxury apartments. Seeing this demolition as a perfect image for portraying the death of a certain Lisbon in the wake of the financial crisis and the ensuing real estate and touristic boom, the director proposes to film an urban diary portraying the daily life of the construction site and those who work there.
While doing his job as a street sweeper, Juanjo Navas went through the street named after the poet Blas de Otero, one of the great XX Century lyric authors and an emblem of the fight against the Francoist Dictatorship. By chance he discovered his verses and, with the assistance of the Blas de Otero Foundation, he decided to turn them into flamenco. This documentary follows the steps of that encounter between poetry and flamenco in a city, Bilbao, which is scene and catalyst.
