Mi pobre patria

Director – Laura Ginés
Filmwork for live music concert, Maria Rodés performs Franco Battiato’s song Povera Patria.
El deseo de civilización
Fiction – 6′ – YEAR 2014
Director – Carolina Astudillo
War as a preposterous and absolutely masculine fiction -as well as the educational and occupational exclusion of women in a society that educates them to serve and be mothers- is repudiated by Virginia Woolf in Three Guineas.
The Civilization Desire is a piece that appropriates family movies filmed in Spain during the Republic, the Civil War and the early years of Francoism.
The home movie becomes an alternative chronicle to the great stories, that reveals social differences and gender stereotypes learned from childhood, in the civilization of strength, despised by Woolf.
Fiction – 15′ – YEAR 2015
Director – Zoraida Roselló
Animalization is a short film that emerges from the controversy we felt with the presence of Franco’s monument installed in the city of Tortosa. In our reflection the legitimacy of a democratic process of withdrawal request of a monument of Franco clearly diverge with the symbolic meaning to remove a monument with a high artistic value. The piece provokes reflection of the viewer to position to a current dilemma affecting historical memory. Retrieving the opening speech of the monument we hear the voices of our parents and grandparents. Thus, we question about the current state of this huge structure that remains undaunted in the middle of the river that divides Tortosa and offers a unique speech to be mentioned. His withdrawal, reamining, dismantling, musealization and other proposals are on the table for discussion.
