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.
In Sara Fantova’s autobiographical film No me despertéis, teenage Jone is a student at a secondary school in Bilbao where the tense atmosphere reflects the social reality of the political division of the Basque Country in 2009. When her father assumes a position with the Basque Government requiring the services of a bodyguard, he will leave his former life behind, and Jone will have to learn to live between two worlds as well, and to understand that not everything is black or white.
2018; Euskera & Spanish with English subtitles; 21 minutes; not rated.
