Сказка сказок [Tale of tales] (1979)

An apple in rain. A nursery rhyme. A child breastfeeding, then falling asleep. A tiny grey wolf. Autumn and light. Surreal dreams of family, animals, play, music, skipping. Wind, passing trains, falling leaves, decay, shiny cars disappearing, fire. Dancing. Men … Continue reading

Deeply touching on themes of (dis)ability and dreams. Exquisitely detailed and heartfelt throughout, if sometimes a little clumsily executed. Maybe in my book of listening.

El empleo (2008)

A soft-spoken (non-spoken, even) eye-opener using cruel logic to examine the absurd concept of work. Brilliant idea, neat execution. In my book of human labour. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvSyoH4M6Hk
