Cortometraje [FICM 2013]

“L´Assenza” (2013), Jonathan Romney



¿Qué pasaría si un día te encontrarás a ti mismo en una escena de un filme de los años sesenta? Justo eso ocurre en L´Assenza (The Absence, Gran Bretaña, 2013). Este cortometraje del guionista y director británico Jonathan Romney es una narración fantástica sobre los efectos morbosos que pueda causar el cine.

El personaje principal es un joven casado que se obsesiona con el filme al punto de hacer un viaje a París con tal de volverlo a ver. Cada vez que lo hace su doble parece adquirir más vida. Mientras que él pierde el sueño y no logra pensar en nada más. Es decir, mientras él se desvanece.

La fascinación que produce el cine en algunas personas no tiene límites. Llegando a confundir su vida con la de las películas. No en vano dicen algunas personas, vive tu vida como una película que quisieras ver.

La banqueta

La banqueta (México-España, 2013), de la directora Anaïs Pareto Onghena fue premiada como el mejor cortometraje de ficción del festival. Este filme narra cómo una banqueta puede convertirse en un lugar de encuentro y desencuentro. Punto de reunión y de partida.

El espacio urbano puede transformarse, sólo hace falta una tercia de amigos y un poco de alcohol. Cosa que es muy común en las colonias de la Ciudad de México, el escenario de esta historia.

Una despedida es el argumento que da origen a este corto. Tres amigos que esperaban encontrarse en otra situación en sus vidas. Y que ahora, contemplan sus vidas y sus anhelos a la distancia.

Con una narración sencilla y diálogos muy bien logrados apoyados en la atmósfera que la fotografía logra, esta es una historia que logra conmover a todos.


Jerusalén (México, 2013), de la directora Alicia Segovia Juárez, recibió el Premio Especial Studio 5 de Mayo. Es la historia de Camila y Ana, un par de hermanas cuya familia se cae a pedazos.

Teniendo que lidiar con la soledad, las hermanas se refugian en una serie de pequeños ritos que les ayudan a sobrellevar los gritos y la violencia de sus padres. Israel, Jerusalén, Irán, Teherán, Líbano, Beirut, repite incesante la mayor de las hermanas. Una especie de mantra que la trasporta a otro lugar. Con la madre dopada la mayor parte del tiempo, las dos niñas deciden aventurarse para buscar a los reyes magos en un desfile de año nuevo.

Con una fotografía que produce un efecto onírico que tiene como fondo una pesadilla, la historia se desarrolla rápidamente. Llevando a la hermana mayor a enfrentarse con la pérdida de la menor.

Dr. Onco

Este cortometraje michoacano titulado es una pesadilla en stop motion. Dr. Onco (México, 2013), de la directora Yadira Arellano, obtuvo el premio especial I.SAT. La historia es por demás sencilla, pero aterradora. Ana, en su cama de hospital se duerme. Al despertar descubre que está en otro lugar. O quizá el hospital ha revelado su verdadera apariencia, la del umbral entre la vida y la muerte.

La pesadilla avanza, mientras el Dr. Onco extrae tumores malignos que le han costado la vida a las mujeres. Los colecciona. Ana reacciona. Sabe que en cualquier momento será su turno, la abrirán como una res y extraerán de su cuerpo la masa carbonizada en que se ha convertido su tumor.

El corto produce ansiedad en el espectador. ¿No es el cáncer una enfermedad que produce cifras de víctimas con muchos ceros? Por fortuna para Ana, sólo es un sueño. Y el cortometraje logra su objetivo, producir una emoción en el espectador. Además de crear conciencia sobre el cáncer.
