100 SPANISH SHORT MOVIES YOU MUST WATCH (VII)
Back to our list and as in previous issues we offer a selection made of known filmmakers: Jaume Balagueró, Pablo Berger, Juanma Bajo Ulloa and new prodigies: Gerardo Herrero, Alice Waddington and Iván Villamel
Let’s highlight the presence of ALICIA, filmed in an innovative style very typical of its age and Mr. Dentonn, Villamel’s successful short breaking records in nominations and awards at fests, and Mama, by Pablo Berger in which we have Alex de la Iglesia as artistic director – a work similar in some ways to Acción mutante.
On the other hand, I pretended not to choose more than one movie per director but I needed to break my rule with Chema García Ibarra, an influence filmmaker since his very beginning. Impossible not to have his great El ataque de los robots de Nebulosa 5.
