El baile del estornino is the story of a boy who had a relationship in the Madrid of the 80s in complete secrecy. The fear of flying away from the mass and of being seen from the distance, gave rise to a relationship in which everything was kept hidden.
His boyfriend disappears without a trace and the only memory he has of him are the letters that were never sent. Already in old age, he remembers that time and reflects on love and how society prevailed over their relationship.
We feel that it is a necessary film because, as time goes by, love is still taboo for many people. Love is not questioned, love should not be a secret.
About the team
El baile del estornino is a short film that was born inspired from a story written by Nacho Antelo. After having the critical eye of Bárbara Fdez., and reviewing it together, they created the project that we are presenting today. Currently, the team is formed, with great enthusiasm, by Marín Moore, as composer of the BSO; Leilah Pérez, as head of sound; Isabel Ortega, as art director; Alex Petrucci, as editor; and Laura Mato, as production manager.
Bárbara Fdez. Is the director of the film and Nacho Antelo is actively participating in the production and plays one of the main characters.
