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.
Marisa Benito’s Dúctiles examines images of women that have been used and shaped by social norms and historical events of different eras, generating visual coding and stereotypes that have been filtered, in one way or another, through male hierarchies that have used them to attribute norms of ethical and moral conduct to women, as well as specific functions and spaces in society.
2018; Spanish with English subtitles; 3 minutes; not recommended for children under 13.
