PAQUI LA DEL QUINTO (Paqui from the fifth floor)

We are excited to show you Paqui la del quinto, a project made with special affection. Affection for Hospitalet de Llobregat, for the neighbourhood and for the humble people who make it up. That is the essence of Paqui la del quinto from start to finish. Paqui, that peculiar character taken to the comedy that could be our neighbour, mother or aunt. Who in the neighbourhood has never met a Paqui? With this small project we want to reflect a little bit of that soul, art and colour. Colour in the form of laughter.
(Includes post-credits scene)
Project carried out in a 48h competition with a time limit of 5 minutes.
