Three months ago, young Spaniard Litus was killed in a car accident. Now, for the first time since his death, his brother Toni gathers his friends together to reminisce about old times and find closure from the tragedy. However, Toni brings unexpected news: Litus left a series of mysterious letters of farewell, one for each companion. As hidden secrets and furtive riddles come tumbling out beyond the grave, director Dani de la Orden provides a complex, layered study of the crushing heartbreak, and tender humour, of a group in mourning.

 

 

UNA NOCHE CON JUAN DIEGO BOTTO
A Night with Juan Diego Botto

Spain | 2018 | Comedy | 11 min |
cert. PG
In Spanish with English subtitles

dir. Teresa Bellón & César F. Calvillo

with Juan Diego Botto and Cristina Soria

Cristina has lusted after Juan Diego Botto, a Spanish actor, for well over twenty years. At long last, she can hardly believe her luck: she's in a fancy restaurant on a genuine date, flirting like crazy with the man of her dreams. However, Botto (who plays himself) is far more interested in saving the planet, decrying one social injustice after another – and another, and another...
She dreams of sex. He dreams of a fairer world.
