Gravedad

Graduation Film 2019

(unpublished)

Gravity changes constantly. Some days are light and some days are heavy. Everyone here has to find something to grab on to, except for Rosa.
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 su balance.
