A Xinecóloga

A gynaecologist is working in her office at the hospital as everyday. But the next patient....is a boy! Naturally the gynaecologist throw out the joker. But he returns with the coordinator (the gynaecologist' boss), who commands the gynaecologist to examine her (meaning the patient)! It's not a joke, it's a conspiracy! But the troubles of the gynaecologist are just beginning...

Film notes

Alfonso Camarero was born in A Coruña, Spain, in 1972. He studied philosophy in the university of Santiago de Compostela an audio in the school of image and sound of A Coruña. Is musician (he plays drums and washboard), cook, chess player, sound designer (Shorts, TV Movies, dozens of documentaries and more than 60 Tv Spots), and now director and producer. In 2008 shot his first film, from an “original” script, with a great crew of technicians and actors from Galicia, in a self-produced way, thanks to a little subvention of the Galician government. For his first film, the director took a difficult challenge: To tell an absurd story in a realistic way… the outcome is a “kafkian comedy”. The dream of reason produces… “The Gynaecologist”.

Saw this at the PictureStart Film Festival alongside some other really fantastic shorts (including mine). Hysterical! Great absurdist humor with very nice comic...
