Instituto Cervantes Albuquerque presents, Cortos en Femenino film series, during the month of December, is part of the short film program with El día más corto (The shorter day). The inspiration of this program is the celebration of films directed by women. Designed by Trama, the coordinator of women’s festivals in Spain, this program presents four very different examples of today’s current short film productions, made up of two fictions, a documentary and a montage film.

Marisa Benito‘s Dúctiles is the story of the image of women that has been used and shaped to the taste of societies and historical events of each era, which has generated visual codes and stereotypes. These models of the ideal woman have been filtered in one way or another by sectors of male power, which have used them to attribute to women norms of ethical and moral conduct, and specific functions and spaces.

Mireia Noguera‘s Centrifugado is the story of a young man who helps an old lady to carry the laundry up to her house. Once inside, the lady seems reluctant to let him go. The environment in which everyday life is structured has always its lights and shadows. And many times, appearances can be deceiving. In this story, starring the ill-fated Rikar Gil and Mireia Noguera’s first film, we witness a dazzling exercise in ellipsis and humanity.

Elena Molina‘s Quand j’étais petit is a documentary of childhood in many African countries and the reality experienced by many other children on the planet. Violence and helplessness, often unavoidable despite families, can lead to horrible conditions. The story of Malone, the protagonist of this story, is a fable that illuminates the future, and it does so through the magic of the story, the ancient capacity of stories to teach us to live and grow.
