The vibrant season of 2020 short films inevitably bears the scar of the pandemic in its production and themes. But not only the selection of the Short Film Competition shows the critical effects of the quarantine, but it also branches across varied fields, such as suspense and horror, aesthetic and visual explorations, the understanding of the body, and historical inheritances; both in films from big national capitals as well as cities like Pelotas, Vila Velha and Uberlândia, we’ll see stories of lyricism, catharsis and poetry.
