Semillas, Un Poema Sobre La Vida

María, an elderly woman, recalls the moments that most marked her life, linking them to Nature through the metaphor materialized in an orange tree, a parallelism by which she tries to bequeath a better world to her grandson by expressing poetically her experiences in his book: “Seeds”.
Directed by Javier Mondragón Cazorla (Spain)

The story is about a man who loses his dog and misses it dearly. The narrative will take you on a journey of his grievance, following the emotional turmoil of the separation. From denial to anger, depression to bargaining and finally…the acceptance.

Clean Up on Aisle Nine

Cody O’Ryan, all American high school football star, craves popularity and dates with hot girls, especially with head cheerleader Kelly Hudson. After a spectacular play, that won the game for his team, he is invited to a victory party that Kelly will definitely attend. His plans are derailed when his mother is called in to work, and he has to babysit the bane of his existence, his younger, nerdy brother, Chandler. Things become catastrophic when Cody is forced to take Chandler to the store and they briefly bump into Kelly, and even more daunting, during an apparent store robbery. Faced with a life and death event and fearing that this may be their last day on Earth together, Cody and Chandler must set aside their differences and come to terms with their true feelings about life, family and their feelings for each other. “Clean Up on Aisle Nine” is a traditional heart-warming comedy that promises to keep you laughing all the way to the toilet.
Directed by Derrick J. Johnson (USA)
