Devil's Hooves at Dusk

Spain, 1997 (MIFF 1998, Experimental)

Director: Alex Calvo-Sotelo

Consisting of just two shots, Devil's Hooves at Dusk is a highly stylised surrealistic film concerning a bizarre party organised for Lucia by her mother, the principal question being whether Lucia will turn up herself. An hilarious contemporary Spanish piece openly paying tribute to the master, Luis Bunuel.
