Otras Vidas is a fiction short film that narrates the encounters of Silvia and Víctor. The story is told through their conversations, doubts, desires and fantasies. We’ve almost completed the pre-production stage and we are about to start production. Our hope is to raise, through Verkami, the necessary funds to complete our short film and to make it reach as many viewers as possible.

Otras Vidas is a production by REXi Productions that is also being supported by MOVERSO FILMS. It was born from the idea of ​​telling a simple story, but full of details. It shows a few days in the life of Silvia, the main character, without judging her love decisions. This is a film proposal where enotions take priority over actions, where the feelings (of both of its characters and the public) overcome the thorough understanding of the plot. A cinema of "the how" and not "the what".

Relationship, intimacy, lack of love; these are banal themes at first glance, but definitively universal. With a minimalist aesthetic and nostalgia for the Nouvelle Vague, Otros Vidas focuses on hands, knees, necks and mouths in many of its frames, supporting the intensity of the dialogues. The music fallows along the lines of blues and chill out. All this supports Jean-Luc Godard’s statement on his Theory of Author: not asking ourselves who makes great films, but what makes a film great.
