Sergio Caballero at IFFR
A film with a logic, beauty and humour all of its own. Two ghosts - recognisable by their white robes with holes for the eyes - leave the Sonar Music Festival and set off for Finisterre, at the end of Jacob’s Way. And an ode to Philippe Garrel’s The Inner Scar, which was shown at the very first Rotterdam Festival.
Ancha es Castilla/N'importe quoi
Homage to horror in an absurdist, obscene, improvised style full of humour and clichés. Mix of puppetry animation and artificial live action.
A performance artist is being held in a deserted Siberian power station following the unexpected death of his oligarch patron. Dryly comic surrealism (with an attractive soundtrack and three telepathic dwarves) from Tiger Award winner Caballero. Nominated for The Big Screen Award.
