La educación del Rey / Rey's education
Santiago Esteves
Argentina 
Escaping from his criminal baptism, Reynaldo Galíndez, alias “Rey”, lands in the patio of the house inhabited by Carlos Vargas, a retired security guard. Vargas proposes a deal: the young boy will repair the damage caused to his home when falling in return for not being handed over to the police.

Escaping from his criminal baptism, Reynaldo Galíndez, alias “Rey”, lands in the patio of the house inhabited by Carlos Vargas, a retired security guard. Vargas proposes a deal: the young boy will repair the damage caused to his home when falling in return for not being handed over to the police. The lessons given to the teenager by the old guard will give rise to a relationship not unlike the old legends of educating a king (for the “Rey” of his name, meaning “king” in Spanish). The agreement will start to fall apart when the loose ends of the robbery Reynaldo had participated in start wrapping themselves round them.

Andrés (35) and his son Pedro (12) live in a working district of Caracas and hardly ever see one another. While Andrés fills his time doing different jobs, Pedro wanders the streets playing with his friends and learning from the violent atmosphere around him. During a pelota game, Pedro fights with a boy, injuring him with a bottle. Andrés is embarrassed when he hears what has happened and decides to flee from the district in search of refuge. This situation will expose a father incapable of controlling his teenage son, but it will also involuntarily bring them closer than they have ever been.

Las olas / The Waves
Adrián Biniez
Uruguay - Argentina 
Exhausted on leaving work, Alfonso (38) goes to the beach and dives into the sea. Coming to the surface, he finds himself on another beach, in another time. His parents are waiting for him, calling to him from the water’s edge. Alfonso sees and understands everything from his adult’s body, even if they treat him like an 11 year old. This is the beginning of a fantastic voya...

Exhausted on leaving work, Alfonso (38) goes to the beach and dives into the sea. Coming to the surface, he finds himself on another beach, in another time. His parents are waiting for him, calling to him from the water’s edge. Alfonso sees and understands everything from his adult’s body, even if they treat him like an 11 year old. This is the beginning of a fantastic voyage through the different holidays in his life, where the situations come one after the other with no chronological order, interrupting with a tone of intimacy and entertaining nostalgia his meetings with girlfriends, teenage and childhood pals, his daughter and his loneliness.

María José is 25. Her life moves back and forth between the monotony of class at the university, her eternally distant parents and a couple of alternative spaces where she can explore her own and others’ limits. One day she meets Javier, a boy she really likes and tries to have a relationship with, but her behaviour starts changing radically. In fact she’s a few months into her pregnancy and no one knows.

Un gran dragón / A Great Dragon
Jaime Osorio Marquez
Colombia 
Marcos, a withdrawn park ranger, sees the fragile balance achieved in his isolation collapse with the arrival of a couple of biologists investing strange bird deaths. Unfortunately, the desire and envy for normality represented by the couple awaken the monster he has been trying to control. His face, his legs and his arms don’t belong to him and as the desperation becomes inc...

Marcos, a withdrawn park ranger, sees the fragile balance achieved in his isolation collapse with the arrival of a couple of biologists investing strange bird deaths. Unfortunately, the desire and envy for normality represented by the couple awaken the monster he has been trying to control. His face, his legs and his arms don’t belong to him and as the desperation becomes incontrollable, he can only see one way out: mutilation.
