Alba

Alba, white on black, light on dark.
The same title that, presumably can be the symbolic name of the woman, is the threshold of this short film. It is his counterpoint.

In the environment of a rural environment that represents the primitive aridity to which human relationships can reach, a woman and a man have gone through their emotional life from loving sweetness to the inhospitable space of neglect where man's impassivity makes it clear that he has transformed his wife into a neutral object.

Alba is a short film that deals with an unresolved issue today in our "advanced society".

Alba is a film about hope.

Director Statement

The short film promotes the independent cinema of which I consider myself a strong advocate, since it helps to promote the creation of cinematography with economically adjusted budgets that do not restrict creative freedom and emphasize a more natural, profound and poetic relationship between the filmmaker and the camera.

In my case, in addition, I make a cinema without dialogues, a cinema of contemplative character that contributes to a general understanding that is not hindered by language borders, but benefited by a rational and emotional understanding in any place where it is seen.
