Join us for an evening of some of the best new short films to come out of Spain this year. Films include:

"The Whole World" (2016, 30 min. Dir. Julián Quintanilla) Every year Julián visits the cemetery where his mother is buried. She appears to him and they make plans "more or less together." But this year she gives him a special mission that will surprise the whole world.

"Tabib" (2017, 8 min. Dir. Carlo D’Ursi) When the Al Quds Hospital in Aleppo, Syria, is bombed by the allied air force, the attack kills the last pediatrician in the city. This is the story of the final minutes of his life.

"Talking Heads" (2016, 17 min. Dir. Juan Vicente Córdoba) People of different ages, professions and social classes answer two simple questions: who are you and what do you want from life?

"Swimming in the Desert" (2016, 18 min. Dir. Alvaro Ron) A retired firefighter in California's high desert is inspired by a 10-year-old schoolgirl to bring clean water to a drought-stricken town by connecting miles of garden hose to his private well.

"Baraka" (2017, 22 min. Dir. Néstor Ruiz Medina) In the months before the war in Iraq, two brothers are separated; when they meet again as the war is in full swing, neither is the same.

This is a free program - first come, first served.
