Instituto Cervantes Albuquerque and the NHCC present the Cortos en femenino film series during the month of December, a month dedicated to cortometraje (short subjects) with “[ED+C] El día más corto”—the shortest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere. Designed by Trama, coordinator of women’s festivals in Spain, the series celebrates the talented female directors working in this format with screenings of four very different short films—two dramatic works, one documentary, and one montage.
A young man helps an old lady carry her laundry up to her house. Once inside, she seems reluctant to let him go. The environment in which everyday life goes on always has its lights and shadows, and appearances are often deceiving. Centrifugado, Mireia Noguera’s first film, is a dazzling demonstration of ellipsis and humanity.
2018; Spanish with English subtitles; 11 minutes; not recommended for children under 7.
