ZAPATOS-CHAUSSURES-SHOES

Director: JAVIER ERCILLA & VICTORIA PLAZA.
Little more than seven minutes unfold step by step with a spirit of fantasy, reflection, sensations and empathy... Seven minutes that walk together with the spectators, with their capacity to read in images the feeling of the feet with their experiences, and that wander in the mind of who wears each of the shoes. Walking amongst photographs in black and white, in color and in neon. Moving forward on the path of thinking through images and sound To feel, somehow, that the steps are never lost... Poco más de siete minutos que se dibujan paso a paso con ánimo de fantasía, reflexión, sensación y empatía… Siete minutos que caminan con el espectador, con su capacidad de leer en imágenes el sentir de los pies, con sus vivencias y que deambulan en la mente de quien lleva cada uno de los zapatos. Caminar entre fotografías en blanco y negro, en color y en neón. Avanzar por el camino de la reflexión visual y sonora. Sentir, de alguna manera, que los pasos no son nunca perdidos… Un peu plus de sept minutes qui se dessinent pas à pas, avec un esprit de fantaisie, de réflexion, de sensation et d'empathie... Sept minutes qui marchent avec le spectateur, avec sa capacité de lire en images les sensations des pieds avec ses expériences, et qui déambulent dans l'esprit de celui qui porte chaque soulier. Marcher entre des photographies en noir et blanc, en couleur et en néon. Avancer sur le chemin de la réflexion visuelle et sonore. Sentir, d'une certaine façon, que les pas ne sont jamais perdus...

THINK OF ME

Director: Bryan Wizemann.
Las Vegas. Present day. A downward spiraling economy. Think of Me is the heartbreaking story of Angela Jerome (Lauren Ambrose, SIX FEET UNDER), a young single mother doing her level best not to fall apart. Her daughter Sunny (newcomer Audrey Scott) is one of the few joys in her life, but raising a child alone is a struggle on even the best of days. When the worst week of Angela's life builds to a breaking point, she is faced with an impossible choice: keep trying to make things work, or let it all go for the promise of something better. Co-starring Dylan Baker (HAPPINESS) as Max, a nihilistic reflection of Las Vegas itself, and his sister, Louise (Penelope Ann Miller, THE ARTIST), whose self-interested offer of 'help' becomes the hardest decision Angela will ever have to make.
