Short Film

Rubén Gámez – La Fórmula secreta AKA The Secret Formula (1965)

IMDB comments say:
This is one of the best Mexican short movies ever. You could probably imagine the Mexican idiosyncrasy, read some history books, but you will find a big difference and experience the feeling of the post-revolutionary age of Mexico with this film.

Labor unions, the invasion of large scale and global foreign companies, the mother’s love, the Mexican habits descriptions are part of this master piece.

Adding the emotion of Jaime Sabine’s narration voice in all the allegoric signs and metaphors. Read More »

Dan Deacon & Jimmy Joe Roche – Ultimate Reality [+Extras] (2007)

It combines an intense musical composition for electronics and drums with a psychedelic montage of Arnold Schwarzenegger films that is projected at a monumental scale. The live energy of the performance has allowed the piece to freely move between art and music venues and grant it a wide audience of appreciation. Read More »
