The short film El escarabajo al final de la calle, produced by Escac Films and directed by Joan Vives, with a technical team made up of ESCAC graduates, won the award for Best Ibero-American Short Film at the 33rd Guadalajara International Film Festival this weekend.

The short film was also selected in official competition at the Clermont Ferrand Festival last January and has a long journey of festivals ahead of it. With this award obtained at the FICG, the short film is eligible to be entered for the Oscars.

In the Best Ibero-American Documentary category, where another Escac Films production was competing, the documentary Desde que bailas, by Beatriz Osorno and Álvaro Torrelli, the winner was the Argentinian film El espanto. In this edition of the festival, with Catalonia as guest of honour, films made here have been the protagonist of sections, retrospectives and professional conferences. In addition, fourth-year student Adrià Guxens attended the festival as a Mezcal Jury member representing the school.



Amadeo is a good person. He lives in a quiet village in Valencia, and since his wife died, he devotes himself body and soul to taking care of his invalid father-in-law, Mr. Agustín. Because of this, he goes quite unnoticed among the people. One fine day Lolín, the fishmonger’s daughter, has a premonition when she decapitates an eel: Amadeo has seven days left to live. This will trigger a series of events that will change his life completely.
