Pablo's Winter

Chico Pereira
Screening time  
25.02. / Monday, 17:00 - 19:00 Theatre 1  
A grumpy 70-year-old Spaniard Pablo suffered through several heart attacks and is now considered to live a ‘borrowed’ life. He does not care about benevolent doctors’ and family’s advice.

Even though he is constantly complaining and regretting about the past when everything was better, he still manages to get the audience’s sympathy. We see him arguing with his wife, playing cards with friends, saving a sheep from drowning and daydreaming about the past he spent in mercury mines. The film won the Best Student Film Award at IDFA and was screened in Documentary Fortnight at MOMA.
