Beautiful Boy

“Beautiful boy” is a black comedy about the importance of our legacy, the footprint we will leave in the world. Sometimes consumerism contaminates our intentions and we erroneously consider that "we are what we have".

Andrés is one of those people. He dedicates his life to collecting things routinely. Everything changes when he discovers that his latest collection is completed with his death.

Directed by Fran X. Rodríguez / Comedy / 14 minutes / 2018

Neno Bonito

“Neno Bonito” é unha comedia negra sobre a importancia do legado que deixamos no mundo. En ocasións, o consumismo contamina as nosas intencións e, de xeito errado, pensamos que "somos o que temos".

Andrés é unha desas persoas. Dedicou toda a súa vida a coleccionar cousas. Todo cambia cando descobre que a súa última colección só estará completa coa súa morte.

Dirixida por Fran X. Rodríguez / Comedia / 14 minutos / 2018
