EL CUERNO / THE HORN
As a human being, aka “The Horn” - a former Colombian guerrilla commander - leaves much to be desired. He cheated, extorted and murdered, up until reaching absolute self-fulfillment in the Far North of Sweden. A haunting, disturbing gaze into the mind of a sociopath, against the backdrop of the European immigration crisis.

THE DESERT CHRONICLES
Three men, three lifestories. A Spanish constructor facing bankruptcy, a 60 years old French cowboy and a Senegalese immigrant searching for a new beginning, face life in a desolate land in South Spain: Almería, a forgotten region formerly known as the setting for major Western-film production. Where the echo of the Westerns still resonate throughout kilometers of dust and silence.
directed by Frederik Jan Depickere and Pablo Castilla, year of production: 2008, running time: 60 minutes
