Gravedad

Graduation Film 2019

(unpublished)

Gravedad is a film about a tiny town where gravity changes constantly. Being pulled up and down by the light and the heavy days, Rosa has to find something to grab on to. She has to find balance.

The short is a lonely meditation about dreams as the only way to escape sadness and depression.

Gravedad es una  peliculita sobre un pequeño pueblo en donde la gravedad cambia como cambia el clima.

Es ahi donde Rosa tiene que encontrar algo que la mantenga aferrada al suelo. Tiene que encontrar el balance.
