50 o dos ballenas se encuentran en la playa
Jorge Cuchí  (Mexico)

Félix, a 16-year-old boy, receives an invitation: Do you want to play the Blue Whale, the game with 50 challenges, the one where you’ve got to commit suicide at the end? Félix accepts.

El otro Tom
Rodrigo Plá  (Mexico)

Memory House
João Paulo Miranda  (Brazil - France)

Cristovam, a native from the Brazilian hinterland, works in a milk factory in a former Austrian colony in Brazil. He feels lonely, ostracised by cultural and ethnic differences. One day, he discovers an abandoned house filled with objects that remind him of his origins. He slowly settles in this house. Curiously, more objects start to appear without explanation, as if the place was alive. First film.
