Cortos de ficción [FICM 2013]

“Blackout” (2013), Manuel Camacho Bustillo


Morelia, Mich.- Uno esperaría recibir un golpe. Una emoción con la claridad con que un verdugo ejecuta a una persona. Los cortometrajes, como los cuentos, exigen pura concentración narrativa. Desde luego el cine hará uso de sus propias fuerzas para lograr el efecto deseado.

En el FICM se le ha dado impulso al cortometraje mexicano de ficción. Algunos mejores que otros. Pero se agradece la proyección de este género fílmico que, a mi parecer, requiere no sólo astucia y garra para narrar las historias, necesita también sensibilidad para conectar al espectador con el alma de los personajes.

El palacio de las flores (México, 2013)

Regina García Solórzano, directora y guionista de este cortometraje, presenta una historia sencilla. Nada de parafernalia. El engaño y la traición es el tema de su filme.

Con diálogos acertados se desarrolla en doce minutos la historia. Me gusta pensar en los cortos extras como cuentos. Y éste sale bien librado del trance de transmitir una emoción al espectador.

Con tomas que favorecen la narración, se logra ubicar al espectador en el conflicto de una mujer que descubre que su pareja lo engaña. Con otro hombre. Puede que sea una historia muy sencilla. Pero bien contada.

El último velo (México, 2013)

Luis David Palomino Benítez, director y guionista, presenta la historia de Citlali. Una mujer que a lo largo de un día se enfrenta a la ciudad. Y a un padecimiento oculto que la enfrenta con su existencia. El filme plantea de manera inteligente una serie de conflictos que ayudan a darle hondura a la historia y al personaje.

El nudo está en la esperanza de una cura que no llegará. No importa cuánto rece o a cuentos curanderos visite. Sabe que al final su condición es irrevocable. Por fortuna se cuenta la historia sin tratar de abarcar demasiado. Lo cual siempre echa a perder lo que de otra forma sería un buen corto.

Blackout (México, 2013)

Manuel Camacho Bustillo, director y guionista, le ha dado un giro interesante a la competencia de cortometrajes. Blackout es una historia mordaz. De humor negro. De atmósfera genialmente lograda por la fotografía en blanco y negro a cargo de Javier Zarco.

Se postula como uno de los mejores cortometrajes del festival. Después de haber obtenido una mención honorífica en el Festival de Huesca, España, en éste mismo año. El escenario es una feria donde la historia se desarrolla en apenas quince minutos.

Su sencillez y los diálogos bien logrados sumergen al espectador en la historia. En ella se entrevé el conflicto humano. La lucha por ganarse el derecho a portar la botarga del personaje principal de la feria. Y todo comienza a partir de un evento inesperado, un apagón. De ahí el título de la película, en inglés.

Los dos personajes, Beto y Enrique, quienes siempre portan la botarga, se sientan a platicar. Unos sobre el pasado glorioso en que portó la botarga con quien todos quieren fotografiares. Y el otro, un joven que aspira algún día ser digno portador de ella. Y en medio de las risas uno se pregunta si acaso todos dejamos ir la vida en aspiraciones mediocres, ya sean botargas o puestos ejecutivos. Una crítica al éxito.

Este cortometraje es parte de un trabajo más amplio. Una serie de cortos cuyo eje conductor son las situaciones que desencadenan los apagones.
