La Herencia

Spain, 1940. A police questioning a man tied to a chair. In the wake of the interrogation, the police found the son of man, and watch it disappear. The years will pass, but not the memories, and the man’s vengeance for the loss of the child.

Film notes

In "Inheritance" I contemplate the challenge of making a short film happened in two different periods, trying to cover all technical and artistic sections: photography, sound, wardrobe, make-up, special effects, documentation, etc.
The idea has been to make a short film with a solid cultural and historical proposal. For this reason, from this period photographs have been used: from the Valencia Library historical archives, Málaga city historical archives and from the cinematographic archives specialized producer La Hormiga Roja, S.L.
The result is a short film that it invites to reflect. It doesn´t look for answers, but it makes questions to the spectator about the consequences of war, confronted positions and how the childhood and adolescence environment makes a conditional to the character and thoughts.
