The twelve films for this selection are suitable for an assiduous observer who goes in search of other experiences with cinema time and its possible transformations. The landscapes and city spaces are here the center of experimentation, being accompanied by musical rhythms, fragmentation of images, different uses of color or black and white, as well as the exploration of textures, shapes, the use of light or those atmospheres achieved by a sonic emphasis.
In this program, it is also possible to see and feel the relationships between man and nature, their balance, transformation or acceptance of change, while mixing creative perspectives that invite tranquility, imagination, or pure entertainment, accepting that everything can be possible under other types of universes.

Some fishermen end the day mending their nets. Weaving and wait for nightfall to begin again, the other day, a new dawn.
