Caracola

Synopsis: He is late. She is angry. He tries to explain himself, but words aren't necessary.

Caracola is the first shortfilm I have written and directed. It is the outcome of a practical exercise of my degree, where we had to produce a narrative short. The idea was to produce a story with the following limitations: no more than 10 minutes, one location and no more than three characters. The inspiration for the short came from an idea I had for a smartphone commercial. Luckily, the shortfilm has been received very well in film festivals, especially in those runned by deaf communities. It has also been selected as part of a short film catalogue / DVD for educational purposes, released by ALCINE Film Festival to help teachers to educate through narrative.
